General information

Case sensitivity

All names and references in TypoScript are case sensitive! This is very important to notice. For example watch the words “TEXT” and “value” in this TypoScript code:

myObject = TEXT
myObject.value = <strong>Some HTML code</strong>

This is not the same as

myObject = text
myObject.Value = <strong>Some HTML code</strong>

While the first will be recognized as the content object “TEXT” and will produce the desired output, the latter will not be recognized and will not output anything. Even if you wrote “TEXT” in uppercase in the second example, it would still not work, because the property “value” is misspelled.

Always remember: In this manual the case of objects is important.

Version numbers

For new features TypoScript Reference includes a note in which TYPO3 version the feature was added. If such a note is missing, the feature is part of TYPO3 since version 7.6 at least.
