By default, TYPO3 CMS 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.
This page type is a shortcut to another page in the page tree. When users navigate to this page in the frontend, they will be taken seamlessly to the shortcut's destination.
- Mount point
A mount point lets you select any other page in the page tree. All child pages of the chosen page will display as child pages of the mount point. This lets you duplicate parts of your page tree in terms of navigation, without actually duplicating pages and content.
See the Mounts section in TYPO3 Explained for more information about mount points.
- Link to External URL
This page type is similar to the Shortcut type but leads the user to a page on another web site.
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.
