constants

This object can be used to define constants for replacement inside a parseFunc. If parseFunc somewhere is configured with .constants = 1, then all occurrences of the constant in the text will be substituted with the actual value. This is useful, if you need one and the same value at many places in your website. With constants, you can maintain it easily.

Note

The constants defined here are not the ones, which can be defined in the constants section of your template and which then in the setup section can be used as {$myconstant}. For these constants see the according chapter in "TypoScript Syntax and In-depth Study".

Description

Constants in the form constants.key = value.

The "key" is the constant name, which you write in your texts. The "value" is the actual output, which you want to get in your website.

Examples:

constants.EMAIL = email@email.com

If now parseFunc somewhere is configured with .constants = 1, then all occurrences of the string ###EMAIL### in the text will be substituted with the actual address.
