Other than the references, you can find additional information by searching the Web. For example, try a search phrase such as [ typo3 fluid ] on a popular video website.

Lastly, after searching to find information already published, you may want to ask the TYPO3 community.

You can get information about where to get help on

Specifically, choose one of these options:

  1. Ask programming related questions on Stack Overflow using the tag “typo3”
  2. Ask general TYPO3 questions in the Slack channel #typo3-cms in the TYPO3 Slack workspace. Get your Slack invitation first.
