“Speaking URLs” are a must-have feature for web pages. TYPO3 v9 and newer provide the Routing feature for this, former TYPO3 versions needed the third-party extensions RealURL or CoolUri.

TYPO3 also provides the navigational content elements “Section menu” and “Section index of subpages from selected pages”, which will build a list of pages and their included content elements.

These content elements will be linked by their unique id, e.g.:

It’s working well, but it’s not human-readable.

What does it do?

First of all, this extension provides human-readable URL fragments for TYPO3 content elements:

Furthermore, the extension allows to set anchor links next to the header. An editor can activate these with a checkbox for individual content elements.


In fact, you can see both features in action on this very documentation page:

  • Hover your mouse over a heading. A link symbol will appear. This is the anchor link.
  • Click on this anchor. Your browser will jump to this section. A readable fragment will be added to the URL.


  • Editors can set individual, human-readable fragment identifiers per content element.
  • Editors can activate anchor links to headers per content element.
  • Fallback: If no fragment is given, the default link is used in section menus.
  • Evaluation #1: Only supported characters are stored. Special characters are replaced.
  • Evaluation #2: All content elements on the same page will get a unique fragment identifier.
  • Error prevention: By default, the fragments are prepended with the uid of the content element.
  • Of course, the Fluid templates can be customized to your needs.
