Content elements

New Content Elements

It’s possible to add drop zones for new content elements in a custom content elements. This is done by the class called ContentEditableWrapperService.

  • Example of usage.

    page = PAGE
    page.1001 = USER
    page.1001 {
       userFunc = Your\NameSpace\YourWrappingClass->wrapWithDropZone
    }
    
  • Create your PHP class with user function

    <?php
    
    namespace Your\NameSpace;
    
    use TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\GeneralUtility;
    use TYPO3\CMS\FrontendEditing\Service\AccessService;
    use TYPO3\CMS\FrontendEditing\Service\ContentEditableWrapperService;
    
    class YourWrappingClass {
    
         /**
         * @param string $content Empty string (no content to process)
         * @param array $conf TypoScript configuration
         * @return string $content
         */
         public function wrapWithDropZone($content, $conf)
         {
              if (GeneralUtility::_GET('frontend_editing') && GeneralUtility::makeInstance(AccessService::class)->isEnabled()) {
                   $wrapperService = GeneralUtility::makeInstance(ContentEditableWrapperService::class);
    
                   $content = $wrapperService->wrapContentWithDropzone(
                        'tt_content', // table name
                        -1, // page uid, pid
                        $content,
                        0, // colPos
                        // additional fields if needed
                        [
                             'subheader' => 'default subheader'
                        ]
                   );
              }
    
              return $content;
         }
    }
