TypoScript Configuration

Each section refers to property names within config.tx_frontendediting.

customRecords

DataType
array of table names with default values.

Default values for records created with the customDropZone ViewHelper.

customRecords {
  tx_news_domain_model_news {
    pid = 6
  }
}

customRecordEditing

Configure Custom record editing.

customRecordEditing {
  tx_news_pi1 {
    actionName = detail
    recordName = news
    tableName = tx_news_domain_model_news
    listTypeName = news_pi1
  }
}

contentPersistPreProcessing

Modify data for a specific table, field, and record type whe saved in Frontend Editing before the data it is persisted to the database. This allows you to remove any (or all) HTML tags or modify the data to better suit the way it should be persisted.

This property consists of nested arrays.

contentPersistPreProcessing {
  <tableName> {
    <type> {
      <field> {
        # Any stdWrap property
      }
    }
  }
}
<tableName>
The name of the table.
<type>
The record type as defined in $GLOBALS['TCA'][<tableName>]['types']. 0 (zero as string) is the default type. * is a wildcard that will apply to any type not explicitly defined.
<field>
The field name. Add any :tsref:`stdwrap` configurations to modify the data. You can also use the :tsref:`userfunc` property to modify data using PHP.

Example

Strip all HTML tags from the bodytext field in the tt_content table if the record type (e.g. the CType field for content elements) is “bullets”.

contentPersistPreProcessing {
  tt_content {
    bullets {
      bodytext {
        stripHtml = 1
      }
    }
  }
}

See also contentPersistPreProcessingPatterns.

contentPersistPreProcessingPatterns

Modify data for any field with a specific RTE preset before the data it is persisted to the database. This allows you to remove any (or all) HTML tags or modify the data to better suit the way it should be persisted.

contentPersistPreProcessingPatterns {
  <preset> {
    replacement {
      10 {
        search = #<br\s*\/?>#i
        replace.char = 10
        useRegExp = 1
      }
    }
  }
}
<preset>
An RTE preset defined in $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['RTE']['Presets']. Add any :tsref:`stdwrap` configurations to modify the data. The modification is applied to any field where [config][enableRichtext] or [config][enableFrontendRichtext] is set and [config][frontendRichtextConfiguration] or [config][frontendRichtextConfiguration] is set to the same as <preset>.

Example

Strip all HTML tags from any field using the RTE preset “default” when saving data in Frontend Editing.

contentPersistPreProcessing {
  default {
    stripHtml = 1
  }
}

See also contentPersistPreProcessing. This property is only applied if no match was found there.

pageContentPreProcessing

DataType
:tsref:`stdwrap`

Transformations applied to the page being edited before it is sent to the user. This is used to ensure features work as expected and inceptions are avoided.

Example

This example from Frontend Editing’s default TypoScript configuration modifies forms so submitting a form produces an editable page. You might have to submit a form to reach some editabe records through Frontend Editing.

pageContentPreProcessing {
  parseFunc {
    tags {
      form = TEXT
      form {
        current = 1
        # Add frontend_editing=true if this is a GET form (rather than POST)
        innerWrap = <input type="hidden" name="frontend_editing" value="true">|
        innerWrap.if {
          value {
            data = parameters : method
            case = lower
          }
          equals = get
        }
        dataWrap = <form { parameters : allParams }>|</form>
      }
    }
  }
}
