About this document

This document explains how versioning and workspaces function in TYPO3 CMS and how they are set up. The first part explains the technical background for administrators or developers who want to make their extensions version aware. The second part is for users of workspaces, a short guide about what is possible and how to use workspaces. The last part shows how to create a custom workspace.


This manual corresponds in large parts to the original version from Kasper found in “TYPO3 Inside”. It was adjusted and updated to fit with the workspaces and versioning modules as found in current versions.


If you find a bug either in this manual or in the workspaces / versioning extensions please use the bug tracker at
