mod

Configuration for backend modules. This is the part of page TSconfig with the most options, most sections affect the main TYPO3 editing modules like Web > Page and Web > List.

Properties

SHARED

colPos_list

Datatype

list of integers

Description

This option lets you specify which columns of tt_content elements should be editable in the 'Columns' view of the Web > Page module.

Used on top of backend layouts, this setting controls which columns are editable. Columns configured in the Backend Layout which are not listed here, will be displayed with placeholder area.

Each column has a number which ultimately comes from the configuration of the table tt_content, field 'colPos'. These are the values of the four default columns used in the default backend layout:

Left: 1, Normal: 0, Right: 2, Border: 3

Default

1,0,2,3

Example

The example creates a basic backend layout and sets the "Left" column to be not editable:

  • Create a record of type "Backend Layout", for instance in the root page of your website

  • Add a title, e.g. "My Layout"

  • Use the wizard to create a two column backend layout, the result may look like this:

    A simple backend layout

    A simple backend layout

  • Create a page and select this new backend layout in the "Appearance" tab. The page module then looks like this, displaying the two defined columns:

    Backend layout used in page module

    Backend layout used in page module

  • Now set the "Left" column to be not editable using page TSconfig in the Resources tab of the page, by restricting colPos_list to 0 (the "Content" columns as defined above):

    EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
    mod.SHARED.colPos_list = 0
    
  • The result in the page module then looks like this:

    One column not editable in a backend layout

    One column not editable in a backend layout

defaultLanguageFlag

Datatype

string

Description

Country flag shown for the "Default" language in the backend, used in Web > List and Web > Page module. Values as listed in the "Select flag icon" of a language record in the backend are allowed, including the value "multiple".

The flag selector of a language record in the backend

The flag selector of a language record in the backend

Example

This will show the German flag, and the text "deutsch" on hover.

EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.SHARED {
   defaultLanguageFlag = de
   defaultLanguageLabel = deutsch
}

Warning

Note that this option has largely been superseded by site configuration since TYPO3 v10 and will only work in the Backend for a "NullSite". For instance, a global sysfolder in the page tree without an attached site configuration. Once a page tree has a site configuration, the default language icon is set from the site configuration's language settings and this option will have no effect at all.

defaultLanguageLabel

Datatype

string

Description

Alternate label for "Default" when language labels are shown in the interface.

Used in Web > List and Web > Page module.

Warning

Note that this option has largely been superseded by site configuration since TYPO3 v10 and will only work in the backend for a "NullSite". For instance a global sysfolder in the page tree without an attached site configuration. Once a page tree has a site configuration, the default language label is set from the site configuration's language settings and this option will have no effect at all.

disableLanguages

Datatype

string

Description

Comma-separated list of language UIDs which will be disabled in the given page tree.

Warning

Note that this option has largely been superseded by site configuration since TYPO3 v10 and will only work in the Backend for a "NullSite". For instance, a global sysfolder in the page tree without an attached site configuration. Once a page tree has a site configuration, the language settings from the site configuration are applied and this option will have no effect at all.

disableSysNoteButton

Datatype

boolean

Description

Disables the sys_note creation button in the modules' top button bar in the Page, List and Info modules.

web_info

Configuration options of the "Web > Info" module.

fieldDefinitions

Datatype

array

Description

The available fields in the "Pagetree overview" module under the Info module, by default ship with the entries "Basic settings", "Record overview", and "Cache and age".

Default entries of Pagetree Overview

Default entries of Pagetree Overview

By using page TsConfig it is possible to change the available fields and add additional entries to the select box.

Next to using a list of fields from the pages table you can add counters for records in a given table by prefixing a table name with table_ and adding it to the list of fields.

The string ###ALL_TABLES### is replaced with a list of all table names an editor has access to.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_info.fieldDefinitions {
   0 {
      # Basic settings
      label = LLL:EXT:info/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_webinfo.xlf:pages_0
      fields = title,uid,slug,alias,starttime,endtime,fe_group,target,url,shortcut,shortcut_mode
   }
   1 {
      # Record overview
      label = LLL:EXT:info/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_webinfo.xlf:pages_1
      fields = title,uid,###ALL_TABLES###
   }
   2 {
      # Cache and age
      label = LLL:EXT:info/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_webinfo.xlf:pages_2
      fields = title,uid,table_tt_content,table_fe_users
   }
}

web_layout

Configuration options of the "Web > Page" module.

allowInconsistentLanguageHandling

Datatype

boolean

Description

By default, TYPO3 will not allow you to mix translated content and independent content in the page module. Content elements violating this behavior will be marked in the page module and there is no UI control (yet) allowing you to create independent content elements in a given language.

If you want to go back to the old, inconsistent behavior, you can toggle it back on using this switch.

Example

Allows to set TYPO3s page module back to inconsistent language mode

EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout.allowInconsistentLanguageHandling = 1

BackendLayouts

Datatype

array

Description

Allows to define backend layouts via Page TSconfig directly, without using database records.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout.BackendLayouts {
   exampleKey {
      title = Example
      icon = EXT:example_extension/Resources/Public/Images/BackendLayouts/default.gif
      config {
         backend_layout {
            colCount = 1
            rowCount = 2
            rows {
               1 {
                  columns {
                     1 {
                        name = LLL:EXT:frontend/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_ttc.xlf:colPos.I.3
                        colPos = 3
                        colspan = 1
                     }
                  }
               }
               2 {
                  columns {
                     1 {
                        name = Main
                                 colPos = 0
                                 colspan = 1
                             }
                         }
                     }
                 }
             }
         }
     }
 }

defaultLanguageLabel

Datatype

string

Description

Alternate label for "Default" when language labels are shown in the interface.

Overrides the same property from mod.SHARED if set.

Warning

Note that this option has largely been superseded by site configuration since TYPO3 v10 and will only work in the Backend for a "NullSite". For instance, a global sysfolder in the page tree without an attached site configuration. Once a page tree has a site configuration, the default language label is set from the site configuration's language settings and this option will have no effect at all.

defLangBinding

Datatype

boolean

Description

If set, translations of content elements are bound to the default record in the display. This means that within each column with content elements any translation found for exactly the shown default content element will be shown in the language column next to.

This display mode should be used depending on how the frontend is configured to display localization. The frontend must display localized pages by selecting the default content elements and for each one overlay with a possible translation if found.

Default

0

hideRestrictedCols

Datatype

boolean

Description

If activated, only columns will be shown in the backend that the editor is allowed to access. All columns with access restriction are hidden in that case.

By default columns with restricted access are rendered with a message telling that the user doesn't have access. This may be useless and distracting or look repelling. Instead, all columns an editor doesn't have access to can be hidden:

EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout.hideRestrictedCols = 1

Attention

This setting will break your layout if you are using backend layouts.

Default

false

localization.enableCopy

Datatype

boolean

Description

Enables the creation of copies of content elements into languages in the translation wizard ("free mode").

Default

1

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout {
   localization.enableCopy = 0
}

localization.enableTranslate

Datatype

boolean

Description

Enables simple translations of content elements in the translation wizard ("connected mode").

Default

1

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout {
   localization.enableTranslate = 0
}

preview

Datatype

string

Description

It is possible to render previews of your own content elements in the page module. By referencing a Fluid template you can create a visual representation of your content element, making it easier for an editor to understand what is going on on the page.

The syntax is as follows:

EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout.tt_content.preview.[CTYPE].[list_type value] = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/ExamplePlugin.html

This way you can even switch between previews for your plugins by supplying list as CType.

Note

This only works, if there is no hook registered for this content type, you may want to check this section in the System > Configuration module:

Search for registrations of this hook
$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['cms/layout/class.tx_cms_layout.php']
   ['tt_content_drawItem']['content_element_xy'];
Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_layout.tt_content {
   preview.custom_ce = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/CustomCe.html
   preview.table = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/Table.html
   preview.list.tx_news = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/TxNews.html
}

web_list

Configuration options of the "Web > List" module.

allowedNewTables

Datatype

list of table names

Description

If this list is set, then only tables listed here will have a link to "create new" in the page and sub pages. This also affects the "Create new record" content element wizard.

This is the opposite of deniedNewTables property.

Note

Technically records can be created (e.g. by copying/moving), so this is not a security feature. The point is to reduce the number of options for new records visually.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   # Only pages and sys_category table elements will be linked to in the new record wizard
   allowedNewTables = pages, sys_category
}
The New record screen after modifying the allowed elements

The New record screen after modifying the allowed elements

clickTitleMode

Datatype

string

Description

Keyword which defines what happens when a user clicks a record title in the list.

The following values are possible:

edit

Edits record

info

Shows information

show

csvDelimiter

Datatype

string

Description

Defines the default delimiter for CSV downloads (Microsoft Excel expects ; to be set). The value set will be displayed as default delimiter in the download dialog in the list module.

Default

,

Example
EXT:examples/Configuration/TsConfig/Page/Mod/csvExport.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   csvDelimiter = ;
   csvQuote = '
}
../_images/ExportDialog.png

csvQuote

Datatype

string

Description

Defines the default quoting character for CSV downloads. The value set will be displayed as default quoting in the download dialog in the list module.

Default

"

Example
EXT:examples/Configuration/TsConfig/Page/Mod/csvExport.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   csvDelimiter = ;
   csvQuote = '
}
../_images/ExportDialog.png

deniedNewTables

Datatype

list of table names

Description

If this list is set, then the tables listed here won't have a link to "create new record" in the page and sub pages. This also affects the "Create new record" content element wizard.

This is the opposite of allowedNewTables property.

If allowedNewTables and deniedNewTables contain a common subset, deniedNewTables takes precedence.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   deniedNewTables = sys_category, tt_content
}

disableSingleTableView

Datatype

boolean

Description

If set, then the links on the table titles which shows a single table listing will not be available - including sorting links on columns titles, because these links jumps to the table-only view.

displayColumnSelector

Datatype

boolean

Default

true

Description

The column selector is enabled by default and can be disabled with this option. The column selector is displayed at the top of each record list in the List module. It can be used to compare different fields of the listed records.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
# disable the column selector completely
mod.web_list.displayColumnSelector = 0

enableClipBoard

Datatype

list of keywords

Description

Determines whether the checkbox "Show clipboard" in the list module is shown or hidden. If it is hidden, you can predefine it to be always activated or always deactivated.

The following values are possible:

activated

The option is activated and the checkbox is hidden.

deactivated

The option is deactivated and the checkbox is hidden.

selectable

The checkbox is shown so that the option can be selected by the user.

Default

selectable

enableDisplayBigControlPanel

Changed in version 11.3: The checkbox Extended view was removed with TYPO3 11.3. Therefore the option mod.web_list.enableDisplayBigControlPanel has no effect anymore.

hideTables

Datatype

list of table names, or *

Description

Hide these tables in record listings (comma-separated)

If * is used, all tables will be hidden

hideTranslations

Datatype

list of table names, or *

Description

For tables in this list all their translated records in additional website languages will be hidden in the List module.

Use * to hide all records of additional website languages in all tables or set single table names as comma-separated list.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list.hideTranslations = *
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list.hideTranslations = tt_content, tt_news

itemsLimitPerTable

Datatype

positive integer

Description

Set the default maximum number of items to show per table. The number must be between 5 and 10000. If below or above this range, the nearest valid number will be used.

Default

20

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   itemsLimitPerTable = 10
}

itemsLimitSingleTable

Datatype

positive integer

Description

Set the default maximum number of items to show in single table view. The number must be between 5 and 10000. If below or above this range, the nearest valid number will be used.

Default

100

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   itemsLimitSingleTable = 10
}

listOnlyInSingleTableView

Datatype

boolean

Description

If set, the default view will not show the single records inside a table anymore, but only the available tables and the number of records in these tables. The individual records will only be listed in the single table view, that means when a table has been clicked. This is very practical for pages containing many records from many tables!

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list {
   listOnlyInSingleTableView = 1
}

The result will be that records from tables are only listed in the single-table mode:
The list module after activating the single-table mode

The list module after activating the single-table mode

Default

0

newPageWizard.override

Datatype

string

Description

If set to an extension key, then the specified module or route will be used for creating new elements on the page.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
mod.web_list.table.tt_content.hideTable = 1

table.[tableName].displayColumnSelector

Datatype

boolean

Description

If set to false, the column selector in the title row of the specified table gets hidden. If the column selctors have been disabled globally this option can be used to enable it for a specific table.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
# disable the column selector for tt_content
mod.web_list.table.tt_content.displayColumnSelector = 0
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
# Disable the column selector everywhere except for a specific table
mod.web_list.displayColumnSelector = 0
mod.web_list.table.sys_category.displayColumnSelector = 1

tableDisplayOrder

Datatype

array

Description

Flexible configuration of the order in which tables are displayed.

The keywords before and after can be used to specify an order relative to other table names.

Example
mod.web_list.tableDisplayOrder.<tableName> {
   before = <tableA>, <tableB>, ...
   after = <tableA>, <tableB>, ...
}

searchLevel.items

Datatype

array

Description

Sets labels for each level label in the search level select box

}

web_ts

Configuration options of the "Web > Template" module.

menu.function

Datatype

array

Description

Disable elements of the "Function selector" in the document header of the module. The keys for single items can be found by browsing System > Configuration > $GLOBALS['TBE_MODULES_EXT'].

The function menu of the Template module

The function menu of the Template module

Warning

Blinding Function Menu items is not hardcore access control! All it does is hide the possibility of accessing that module functionality from the interface. It might be possible for users to hack their way around it and access the functionality anyways. You should use the option of blinding elements mostly to remove otherwise distracting options.

Example
EXT:site_package/Configuration/page.tsconfig
# Disable the item "Template Analyzer"
mod.web_ts.menu.function {
   TYPO3\CMS\Tstemplate\Controller\TemplateAnalyzerModuleFunctionController = 0
}
