TYPO3 v7 has reached its end-of-life November 30th, 2018 and is not maintained by the community anymore. Looking for a stable version? Use the version switch on the top left.

There is no further ELTS support. It is recommended that you upgrade your project and use a supported version of TYPO3.


This function parses the main part of the content, i.e., the content which has been entered in the Rich Text Editor. The function is responsible for the fact that the content is not rendered exactly as it was entered in the RTE. Some default parsing rules are implemented in "css_styled_content", like wrapping lines in <p> tags.

You can also use parseFunc for you own processing. In the following example, every occurrence of "COMP" is replaced by "My company name".

page.stdWrap.parseFunc.short {
        COMP = My company name

The various possibilities of changing the default behavior can be found by using the TypoScript object browser. All possibilities of how parseFunc can alter the rendering are be found in the TypoScript Reference.
