Configuration Quickstart

Here we explain, how to modify the existing configuration in a few simple steps.

View Existing Configuration

To familiarize yourself with the configuration, look at the existing configuration in your TYPO3 website:

To view the existing RTE presets in the "Global Configuration", go to System > Configuration in the backend, choose $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS'] (Global Configuration) and select RTE:

Global Configuration: RTE > Presets

By default, TYPO3 is shipped with three configuration presets:

  • default
  • full
  • minimal

Minimal Example

Here is a very minimal example of changing the default configuration. All configuration is done in a custom sitepackage extension, see also Use a Sitepackage extension.

Override the configuration preset "default" by adding this in <my_extension>/ext_localconf.php (replace my_extension with your extension key):

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['RTE']['Presets']['default'] = 'EXT:my_extension/Configuration/RTE/Default.yaml';

Add the file Configuration/RTE/Default.yaml to your extension, use the file EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Full.yaml (GitHub) as example.

We explain the example Minimal.yaml from the Core:

# Load default processing options
  - { resource: 'EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Processing.yaml' }
  - { resource: 'EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Editor/Base.yaml' }

# Minimal configuration for the editor
        - bold
        - italic
        - '|'
        - clipboard
        - undo
        - redo
