Global extension configuration

After the installation has been completed, some global configuration can be defined.

If you are using TYPO3 8.7, this configuration can be found in the Extension Manager. With version 9.5 this has been moved to the Install Tool.


The following settings are available:

Property: Data type: Description: Default:
storeBackwardsCompatName boolean If set, the field name is populated with the values of the fields first_name, middle_name and last_name. 1
backwardsCompatFormat string Define the format how the name field is populated. Use %1$s for the first name, %2$s for the middle name and %3$s for the last name. %1$s %3$s
readOnlyNameField boolean If set, the name field is set to read only which makes absolutely sense if the value of the field is populated automatically. 1
