About this guide

This guide covers working with content in TYPO3. It includes common tasks an editor might perform, such as working with content elements, editing existing text and images, working with forms, and working with pages.

This guide touches briefly on access restriction concepts, as well as content translation.

  • Backend and Frontend
  • General Backend Structure
  • The Page Tree
  • Pages and Page Content


The examples in this guide are from a TYPO3 installation based on the Official Introduction Package.


This guide is based on material originally written by Marlies Cohen and Eikaa.

It has since been updated by Susanne Moog, François Suter and Felicity Brand.

Thanks to them all!
