Rendering in the Frontend¶
The explanations on this page don't show how to display an RTE but rather, describe how rendering of content should be done in the frontend when it was entered with help of an RTE.
For including an RTE in the frontend you can read Using an RTE in the frontend.
Rendering in TYPO3 is nowadays done mostly with Fluid templates.
RTEs enrich content in most cases with HTML, therefore it's advisable to use
the Fluid ViewHelper
format.html for this kind of content:
<f:format.html><p>Visit the <a href="t3://page?uid=51">example page</a>.</p></f:format.html>
The result might still be missing some important aspects. One example are links
of the form
t3://page?uid=51 that need to be processed. Usually those links should
be transformed already because the ViewHelper is using by default
to parse the content.
Nevertheless it's possible to define the parsing function explicitely and also to define a different parsing function:
<f:format.html parseFuncTSPath="lib.parseFunc"><p>Visit the <a href="t3://page?uid=51">example page</a>.</p></f:format.html>
format.html can be found in the ViewHelper Reference.
Rendering is sometimes done by TypoScript only, in those cases it's possible to
lib.parseFunc_RTE too for parsing:
20 = TEXT 20.value = Visit the <a href="t3://page?uid=51">example page</a>. 20.wrap = <p>|</p> 20.stdWrap.parseFunc < lib.parseFunc_RTE
So for fields of the content-table in the database the TypoScript could look like this:
20 = TEXT 20.field = bodytext 20.wrap = <p>|</p> 20.stdWrap.parseFunc < lib.parseFunc_RTE
Usually the TypoScript function
typolink should be used for single links,
but for text that might include several links that is not possible easily.
lib.parseFunc_RTE is used to simplify and streamline this process.
parseFunc can be found in the TypoScript Reference:
TypoScript Reference: stdWrap.parseFunc
The transformation process during content-rendering is highly configurable. You can find further information here:
