Types of pages

TYPO3 has predefined a number of pages types as constants in typo3/sysext/core/Classes/Domain/Repository/PageRepository.php.

What role each page type plays and when to use it is explained in more detail in Page types. Some of the page types require additional fields in pages to be filled out:

DOKTYPE_DEFAULT - ID: 1

Standard

DOKTYPE_SHORTCUT - ID: 4

Shortcut

This type of page creates a redirect to another page in the frontend. The shortcut target is specified in the field pages.shortcut, shortcut mode is stored in pages.shortcut_mode.

DOKTYPE_BE_USER_SECTION - ID: 6

Backend user Section

DOKTYPE_MOUNTPOINT - ID: 7

Mount point

The mounted page is specified in pages.mount_pid, while display options can be changed with pages.mount_pid_ol. See MountPoints documentation.

DOKTYPE_SPACER - ID: 199

Menu separator

DOKTYPE_SYSFOLDER - ID: 254

Folder

Changed in version 13.0: The recycler doktype (DOKTYPE_RECYCLER - ID: 255) is removed and cannot be selected or used anymore. Any existing recycler pages are migrated to a page of type "Backend User Section" which is also not accessible if there is no valid backend user with permission to see this page.
