Page types

Default page types

By default, TYPO3 includes the following page types.



This is the default page type, and the most common. It covers all basic needs.

Backend User Section

This page type only displays in the frontend for a specific group of backend users. You have to be logged in to the backend to see this type of page.



A folder page type is a container. It is generally used to store records other than pages or content elements. It will not display in the frontend.


This is similar to the Folder type, but indicates that the content is meant for removal. There is no clean-up function, it is just a visual indicator.

Menu separator

This page type creates a visual separation in the page tree. You can use TypoScript to also display these separators in the frontend navigation.

Custom page types

Depending on the project, custom page types may also be available.
