The $GLOBALS[‘PAGE_TYPES’] Array¶
$GLOBALS['PAGES_TYPES'] defines the various types of pages (field:
system can handle and what restrictions may apply to them. Here you can define which tables are
allowed on a certain page type.
The “default” entry in the
$GLOBALS['PAGES_TYPES'] array is the “base”
for all types, and for every type the entries simply overrides the
entries in the “default” type!!
This is the default array as set in
$GLOBALS['PAGES_TYPES'] = [ (string)\TYPO3\CMS\Core\Domain\Repository\PageRepository::DOKTYPE_BE_USER_SECTION => [ 'allowedTables' => '*' ], (string)\TYPO3\CMS\Core\Domain\Repository\PageRepository::DOKTYPE_SYSFOLDER => [ // Doktype 254 is a 'Folder' - a general purpose storage folder for whatever you like. // In CMS context it's NOT a viewable page. Can contain any element. 'allowedTables' => '*' ], (string)\TYPO3\CMS\Core\Domain\Repository\PageRepository::DOKTYPE_RECYCLER => [ // Doktype 255 is a recycle-bin. 'allowedTables' => '*' ], 'default' => [ 'allowedTables' => 'pages,sys_category,sys_file_reference,sys_file_collection', 'onlyAllowedTables' => false ], ];
The key used in the array above is the value that will be stored in the
doktype field of the “pages” table.
As for other
$GLOBALS values, you can view current settings in the
backend in System > Configuration (with installed lowlevel
In TYPO3 versions below 10.4, the
doktype was restricted to numbers
smaller than 200 if the custom page type should be displayed in the
frontend, and larger than 200 when it is just some storage. This limitation
no longer exists, so you can choose a number at will.
Each array has the following options available:
|type||Can be “sys” or “web”. This is purely informative, as TYPO3 CMS does nothing with that piece of data.|
|allowedTables||The tables that may reside on pages with that “doktype”. Comma-separated list of tables allowed on this page doktype. “*” = all.|
|onlyAllowedTables||Boolean. If set to true, changing the page type will be blocked if the chosen page type contains records that it would not allow.|
onlyAllowedTables must be set
for the default type while the rest can choose as they like.
