Many aspects from the web site can be configured through the constant editor.

Constant editor

To ease configuration parameters were grouped. The following main categories are available:

Category Description
PIZPALUE: ADMINISTRATION Everything related to the site administration
PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER BASE Main customer related parameters
PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER STYLE More detailed customer style related parameters
PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER SOCIAL More detailed customer social network related parameters
PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER EXTENDED More detailed customer related parameters
PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER PLUGINS More detailed plugin related parameters


Most extensions provide their own configurations. For more detailed configurations consult the related manual.


Scroll animation

This feature is using one of the libraries Twikito/scroll-effect or Josh.js. They allows to animate content elements while the page is being scrolled.

Four preconfigured animations are available in the animation dropdown menu from the appearance tab in the content element properties dialog. Those animations might be configured as well in the constant editor (category “PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER EXTENDED - Animation”).


Embedding from scroll animation js-libraries is triggered by the presence from the strings data-scroll or data-josh in a content element attribute field.

App icons

In case just a simple favicon is required it can be specified in the category “PIZPALUE - CUSTOMER BASE” from the constants editor.

To get an app icon set for all major platforms the resources might be generated at the “Favicon generator” website. The resulting resources need to be copied to the server web directory and the header data assigned to the related field in the app icon section in the category “PIZPALUE - CUSTOMER BASE” from the constants editor. Remove any line breaks.


By enabling the fastmenu an icon menu is shown on the right page border.

The menu items can be associated with a page or a content. In case a content is referenced it will be shown beside the menu.

The following configurations are available:

Category Purpose
PIZPALUE:CUSTOMER BASE To enable and disable the menu
PIZPALUE:CUSTOMER EXTENDED To define the icon and referenced content/page


The amount of menu items can be adjusted through TS. To add a new item the following code might be used. {
   newItem {
      iconClass = ppicon ppicon-log-in
      contentUid =
      pageUid =


Embed new icons by generating your own icon font.


For some extensions additional configurations are available:


  1. Review content (focus on user experience)
  2. Review seo tags like title-tag and description meta-tag
  3. Create a sitemap
  4. Create a site


In the site configuration specify a robots.txt as static route containing a sitemap. This helps search engines to crawl the site and further registrations at search engines might not be needed. An example robots.txt might look as following:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /typo3/
Disallow: /typo3_src/
Allow: /typo3/sysext/frontend/Resources/Public/*



If needed follow these steps to setup and register the site at google:

  1. Register domain as new property at search console
  2. Verify ownership by adding google-site-verification code to the related seo constant (see figure below)
  3. Register sitemap at google search console
  4. Register domain in google analytics
  5. Add google analytics code to the related seo constant (see figure below)
