Site settings

It is possible to define a settings block in a site's config.yaml which can be accessed both in backend and frontend via the site object.

Additionally, these settings are available as "constants" in both TSConfig and TypoScript templates making it possible to configure for example site-wide storage PIDs which can be used in both frontend and backend.

Adding site settings

Add a settings block to the config.yaml:

   categoryPid: 658
            pid: 23


This example shows how to fill a constant of EXT:felogin via site settings ( and configures a custom categoryPid.

Accessing site settings in page TSConfig or TypoScript

// store tx_ext_data records on the given storage page by default (e.g. through IRRE) = {$categoryPid}

// load category selection for plugin from out dedicated storage page
TCEFORM.tt_content.pi_flexform.ext_pi1.sDEF.categories.PAGE_TSCONFIG_ID = {$categoryPid}


The TypoScript constants are evaluated in this order:

  1. Global 'defaultTypoScript_constants'

  2. Site specific settings from the site configuration

  3. Constants from sys_template database records
