To access the page properties, click on the Edit page properties icon in the Docheader.
The page properties that are available depend on the page type and your TYPO3 installation. The default properties available in the Introduction Package for the Standard page type include:
This tab contains general information about the page. You can change the Page Type, and edit titles for the page and the URL.
The Page Title is used to generate speaking URLs (user
friendly URL format). It is also used in menus and in the
When you specify an Alternative Navigation Title all other instances of Page Title are left unchanged.
This tab is used for search engine optimization. It uses the cs_seo system extension. See the SEO Core extension manual for more information.
The fields available on this tab depend on how your site is configured. How the data is used by the frontend depends on TypoScript which depends on your site configuration.
Typically, you might see the Abstract field, and editorial details like Author Name and Last Update.
This tab contains properties that influence how the page is rendered.
Backend layouts can be applied to pages in the backend (the Web > Page module) to provide alternatives to the standard backend layout. In this way the backend page can mirror the structure of the frontend page. Content areas are then in roughly the same place as in the frontend, making editing easier.
Backend layouts can also be used to influence the rendering of the frontend.
The Show Content from Page field tells the page to display the content from another page. This is an easier method for repeating the content of a single page than using mount points.
Fields on this tab set a variety of different aspects of the page.
Here are some of the common fields:
- Link Target
Set the default Link Target for menu items linking to the page. You can also specify for the page to open in a new window.
- Cache Lifetime
Define a specific cache duration as well as assign cache tags to the page. Some TYPO3 extensions can flush pages from the cache based on their cache tag.
- Use as Root Page
Indicates that this page is the start of a new web site. The page icon in the page tree is replaced by a world icon (as displayed for the "Congratulations" page of the Introduction Package).
- Include in Search
By default, every page is included in the TYPO3 CMS built-in search engine :docs:`ext_indexed_search/Index`. Use this flag to exclude the current page.
- Hide child pages in page tree
Use this option to exclude the child page of the current page from rendering in page tree of the backend. This can be useful if you have a lot of subpages.
- Contains Plugin
Lets you define the page as a container for a frontend plugin.
This tab lets you link media files to the current page. How those files are handled depends on your frontend rendering configuration.
The rest of the properties on this tab are related to Page TSconfig.
This tab lets you control the visibility of the page based on localization.

This tab lets you control the visibility of the page.

TYPO3 CMS provides a system-wide categorisation tool. By default categories can be applied to pages, content elements, and files.
Categories should be created in a folder and then be assigned to pages. The content element type "Special Menus", for example, can display a list of pages from a selected category.
Use this tab for your own editorial notes and internal comments, such as reminders or to-do lists.
Notes display in the backend above the Page Properties tabs. They are not displayed in the frontend.
