A popover in the front end

A popover in the front end

Popovers show additional information in a small window. Mainly they are associated with a link (see popovers component from bootstrap framework).

Create a popover

This extension provides an easy way to use popovers by defining them in the RTE editor:

  1. Select the text that should be associated with a popover

  2. Click the create link button

  3. In the link browser dialog select the register Popover

  4. Select the class Popover and define the title and content

Register popover in link browser

Register popover in link browser

Adjust a popover

To adjust a popovers behaviour related attributes might be added to the link tag. The following link results in a popover showing up when hovering over the link text where clicking on it loads the TYPO3 home page.

<a class="pp-popover" data-trigger="hover" href="t3://pppopover?href=;content=A+text" title="A title">item</a>


The popover content is parsed the same way as the RTE text by using the configuration from lib.parseFunc_RTE hence TYPO3 specific links can be used (e.g. t3://page?uid=6).

Data from type getText

The getText data type can be enabled for the RTE editor. It allows to get various data from a web site. As an example a translated text might be retrieved depending on the currently selected page language. For this users might reference data by using curly brackets within the editor (see example):

Use of localized text within the editor

Use of localized text within the editor


You might reference other content as defined by the "getText" data type.

The feature can be enabled through the constant editor selecting the category PIZPALUE: CUSTOMER EXTENDED (constant: pizpalue.features.content.insertData).


Enabling this feature allows editors to output sensitive data. Enable it only if security isn't compromised.

Pizpalue classes





Applies a margin to the container


Applies a small margin to the container


Applies a padding to the container


Applies a small padding to the container

pp-panel pp-panel-[key]

Sets the background and text for the container. Replace [key] with one of the branding colors (e.g. primary).


Applies a gray background. Replace [value] with a number from 100 to 900.

Content element

These classes act on content element wrappers.




Applies a negative top margin to compensate the top padding


These classes are used in templating or together with JS.




Used in content element to define a replacement text for a data protection notice check box (see contact page).


Elements in a row using this class will have the same height (wrapping containers).


Used to shift a content element below the page header by applying a negative top margin.


Assign this class to a link to make the closest ancestor container with class frame-container linked to the same url. Alternatively the ancestor container can be defined by the class ppc-el-[ancestorclass name].

ppc-el-[ancestor class name]

Used in conjunction with the class pp-extend-link. Overwrites the default link ancestor. Replace [ancestor class name] with the class used in the ancestor container. As an example when assigning the classes pp-extend-link ppc-el-up-my-container to an a-tag the closest ancestor from the link having the class up-my-container assigned to will be linked to the same url as defined in the a-tag.


The following classes are used in the context of the real text editor.




Used to control the behaviour from popovers. Popovers that were triggered from elements having this class close when the user clicks outside the popover.




pp-panel pp-panel-[key]

Sets the background and text as for frames. Replace [key] with one of the branding colors (e.g. primary). Handy to be used with cards to define the card background by assigning the classes to the card body.
