mod

Configuration for backend modules. This is the part of Page TSconfig with the most options, most sections affect the main TYPO3 editing modules like Web > Page and Web > List.

SHARED

colPos_list

Datatype
list of integers
Description

This option lets you specify which columns of tt_content elements should be editable in the 'Columns' view of the Web > Page module.

Used on top of backend layouts, this setting controls which columns are editable. Columns configured in the Backend Layout which are not listed here, will be displayed with placeholder area.

Each column has a number which ultimately comes from the configuration of the table tt_content, field 'colPos'. These are the values of the four default columns used in the default backend layout:

Left: 1, Normal: 0, Right: 2, Border: 3

Default
1,0,2,3
Example

The example creates a basic backend layout and sets the "Left" column to be not editable:

  • Create a record of type "Backend Layout", for instance in the root page of your website

  • Add a title, e.g. "My Layout"

  • Use the wizard to create a two column backend layout, the result may look like this:

    A simple backend layout

    A simple backend layout

  • Create a page and select this new backend layout in the "Appearance" tab. The page modul then looks like this, displaying the two defined columns:

    Backend layout used in page module

    Backend layout used in page module

  • Now set the "Left" column to be not editable using Page TSconfig in the "Resources" tab of the page, by restricting colPos_list to 0 (the "Content" colums as defined above):

    mod.SHARED.colPos_list = 0
    
  • The result in the page module then looks like this:

    One column not editable in a backend layout

    One column not editable in a backend layout

defaultLanguageFlag

Datatype
string
Description

Country flag shown for the "Default" language in the backend, used in Web > List and Web > Page module. Values as listed in the "Select flag icon" of a language record in the backend are allowed, including the value "multiple".

The flag selector of a language record in the backend

The flag selector of a language record in the backend

Example

This will show the German flag, and the text "deutsch" on hover.

mod.SHARED {
    defaultLanguageFlag = de
    defaultLanguageLabel = deutsch
}

defaultLanguageLabel

Datatype
string
Description

Alternative label for "Default" when language labels are shown in the interface.

allowInconsistentLanguageHandling

Datatype
boolean
Description

By default, TYPO3 will not allow you to mix translated content and independent content in the page module. Content elements violating this behavior will be marked in the Page Module and there is no UI control (yet) allowing you to create independent content elements in a given language.

If you want to go back to the old, inconsistent behavior, you can toggle it back on via this switch.

Example

Allows to set TYPO3s page module back to inconsistent language mode

mod.web_layout.allowInconsistentLanguageHandling = 1

BackendLayouts

Datatype
array
Description
Allows to define backend layouts via Page TSconfig directly without using database records.

Example

mod.web_layout.BackendLayouts {
    exampleKey {
        title = Example
        icon = EXT:example_extension/Resources/Public/Images/BackendLayouts/default.gif
        config {
            backend_layout {
                colCount = 1
                rowCount = 2
                rows {
                    1 {
                        columns {
                            1 {
                                name = LLL:EXT:frontend/Resources/Private/Language/locallang_ttc.xlf:colPos.I.3
                                colPos = 3
                                colspan = 1
                            }
                        }
                    }
                    2 {
                        columns {
                            1 {
                                name = Main
                                colPos = 0
                                colspan = 1
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

defaultLanguageLabel

Datatype
string
Description

Alternative label for "Default" when language labels are shown in the interface.

Overrides the same property from mod.SHARED if set.

defLangBinding

Datatype
boolean
Description

If set, translations of content elements are bound to the default record in the display. This means that within each column with content elements any translation found for exactly the shown default content element will be shown in the language column next to.

This display mode should be used depending on how the frontend is configured to display localization. The frontend must display localized pages by selecting the default content elements and for each one overlay with a possible translation if found.

Default
0

disableAdvanced

Datatype
boolean
Description
Disables the clear cache advanced function in the bottom of the page in the module, including the "Create new record" link. As well removes the "Clear cache for this page" icon in the right top of the page module.
Default
0

disableIconToolbar

Datatype
boolean
Description
Disables the topmost icon toolbar with the "view"-Icon and the icon toolbar below.

disableNewContentElementWizard

Datatype
boolean
Description
Disables the fact that the new-content-element icons links to the content element wizard and not directly to a blank "NEW" form.

disableSearchBox

Datatype
boolean

Default
0

editFieldsAtATime

Datatype
positive integer
Description
Specifies the number of subsequent content elements to load in the edit form when clicking the edit icon of a content element in the 'Columns' view of the module.
Default
1

Example

mod.web_layout {
    editFieldsAtATime = 2
}

hideRestrictedCols

Datatype
boolean
Description

If activated, only columns will be shown in the backend that the editor is allowed to access. All columns with access restriction are hidden in that case.

By default columns with restricted access are rendered with a message telling that the user doesn't have access. This may be useless and distracting or look repelling. Instead, all columns an editor doesn't have access to can be hidden:

mod.web_layout.hideRestrictedCols = 1

Attention

This setting will break your layout if you are using backend layouts.

Default
false

localization.enableCopy

Datatype
boolean
Description
Enables the creation of copies of content elements into languages in the translation wizard ("free mode").
Default
1
Example
mod.web_layout {
    localization.enableCopy = 0
}

localization.enableTranslate

Datatype
boolean
Description
Enables simple translations of content elements in the translation wizard ("connected mode").

menu.function

Datatype
array
Description

Disable elements of the "Function selector" in the document header of the module.

The function menu of the Page module

The function keys are numerical:

Columns
1
Languages
2

Warning

Blinding Function Menu items is not hardcore access control! All it does is hide the possibility of accessing that module functionality from the interface. It might be possible for users to hack their way around it and access the functionality anyways. You should use the option of blinding elements mostly to remove otherwise distracting options.

Example
# Disables "Languages" from function menu
mod.web_layout.menu.function {
    2 = 0
}

preview

Datatype
string
Description

It is possible to render previews of your own content elements in the page module. By referencing a Fluid template you can create a visual representation of your content element, making it easier for an editor to understand what is going on on the page.

The syntax is as follows:

mod.web_layout.tt_content.preview.[CTYPE].[list_type value] = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/ExamplePlugin.html

This way you can even switch between previews for your plugins by supplying list as CType.

Note

This only works, if there is no hook registered for this content type, you may want to check this section in the "System > Configuration" module:
$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['cms/layout/class.tx_cms_layout.php']
    ['tt_content_drawItem']['content_element_xy'];

Example

mod.web_layout.tt_content.preview.custom_ce = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/CustomCe.html
mod.web_layout.tt_content.preview.table = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/Table.html
mod.web_layout.tt_content.preview.list.tx_news = EXT:site_mysite/Resources/Private/Templates/Preview/TxNews.html

web_list

Configuration options of the "Web > List" module.

allowedNewTables

Datatype
list of table names
Description

If this list is set, then only tables listed here will have a link to "create new" in the page and sub pages. This also affects the "Create new record" content element wizard.

This is the opposite of deniedNewTables property.

Note

Technically records can be created (e.g. by copying/moving), so this is not a security feature. The point is to reduce the number of options for new records visually.

Example

mod.web_list {
    # Only pages and sys_category table elements will be linked to in the new record wizard
    allowedNewTables = pages, sys_category
}
The New record screen after modifying the allowed elements

The New record screen after modifying the allowed elements

deniedNewTables

Datatype
list of table names
Description

If this list is set, then the tables listed here won't have a link to "create new record" in the page and sub pages. This also affects the "Create new record" content element wizard.

This is the opposite of allowedNewTables property.

If allowedNewTables and deniedNewTables contain a common subset, deniedNewTables takes precedence.

Example

mod.web_list {
    deniedNewTables = sys_category, tt_content
}

disableSearchBox

Datatype
boolean
Description
Disables the search and search icon in the doc header.
Default

Use * to hide all records of additional website languages in all tables or set single table names as comma-separated list.

Example

mod.web_list.hideTranslations = *
mod.web_list.hideTranslations = tt_content, tt_news

Datatype
boolean
Description
If set, the default view will not show the single records inside a table anymore, but only the available tables and the number of records in these tables.
