A content object of type EDITPANEL is inserted only if a backend user is logged in and if a FE-editing extension is installed and loaded. What gets displayed exactly may depend on which FE-editing extension is used. The reference below is related to EDITPANEL settings found in the TYPO3 core. Different FE-editing extension may include their own settings that are not present in this list. In such a case, it is advised to look up that extensions documentation for more information.
In the case of the "feedit" extension, the EDITPANEL also requires that the Admin Panel be displayed (config.admPanel = 1) and that the user has checked the "Display Edit Icons" option. Whenever the edit panel is inserted, page caching is disabled.
The edit panel inserts icons for moving, editing, deleting, hiding and creating records.
An EDITPANEL will appear for each content element on the page. It is also possible to insert an EDITPANEL as cObject in the template, using TypoScript.
A FE-editing extension needs to be installed for this to work. The former "feedit" system extension has been dropped from the TYPO3 core since v10, but is still available as third-party extension:
There are other, more "up to date" FE-editing extensions, as well. For instance you can try out "frontend_editing":
Title for the panel. You can insert the record title with %s
label = Section <b>%s</b>
Define which functions are accessible. Further this comma-separated list may be reduced, if the BE_USER does not have permission to perform the action.
Values should be listed separated by comma. These are the options you can choose from:
toolbar: is a list of icons regarding the page, so use this for page records only.
edit: edit element.
new: create new element.
delete: delete element.
move: move element.
hide: hide element.
Will display a panel for creation of new element (in the top of list) on the page from that table.
Define a page ID where new records (except new pages) will be created.
boolean / integer
If set, a black line will appear after the panel. This value will indicate the distance from the black line to the panel.
If set, only records with a pid matching the current id (TSFE->id) will be shown with the panel.
Wraps the whole edit panel including the black line (if configured).
page = PAGE
page.10 = EDITPANEL
Here the edit panel is inserted as a cObject. In such a case, there is nothing to edit in the FE, but the panel can be used to create new records, for example.
