admPanel

Configuration of the Admin Panel in the Frontend for the user.

The TYPO3 admin panel

This is what the admin panel looks like. Notice the fact that the visibility of the admin panel is ultimately depending on being configured in your frontentd TypoScript template for the website! This is easily done by inserting this string in the TypoScript Template:

# Note this is a frontend TypoScript template and not TSconfig!
config.admPanel = 1

Example user TSconfig to disable the admin panel for a user:

admPanel.hide = 1

Note

The admin panel code is being rewritten in TYPO3 v9, some of the options may be outdated, and most parts may eventually vanish altogether in the future.

Tip

If you want to link to the login-screen of the backend, but wish that the user should return to the frontend for editing, you do that with this link, sending the "redirect_url" parameter to the login-screen. In that case the backend interface is not started.

<a href="typo3/index.php?redirect_url=../">
   Backend login returning to frontend
</a>

enable

Datatype
[object]
Description

Used to enable the various parts of the panel for users. All values are 0/1 booleans.

Enable / disable all modules:

admPanel.enable.all = 1

Enable / disable single parts of the admin panel:

admPanel.enable.tsdebug

For admin users, admPanel.enable.all = 1 is default.

Note

The admin Panel is active for all admin users by default. If this does not fit the necessary setup, the different modules can be disabled.

hide

Datatype
boolean
Description
If set, the panel will not be displayed in the bottom of the page. This only has a visual effect.

override

Datatype
[object]
Description

Override single admin panel settings:

admPanel.override.[modulename].[propertyname]

You have to activate a module first by setting

admPanel.override.[modulename] = 1

Full reference

To find out the name of a modulename/property, you can have a look at the HTML code of the admin panel and watch the names of the form elements. In this example, the module name is "tsdebug", and the property is called "displayTimes":

name="TSFE_ADMIN_PANEL[tsdebug_displayTimes]"
