What does it do?

Solves some basic issues:

  • adding the fields “Keywords” and “Description” to page type “Shortcut”
  • show caption of an image only if there exists one (prevents empty div with class "csc-textpic-caption")
  • enable more files in content element "filelinks"


  • After installing this extension you can configure it in the extension manager.
  • You have to add the template “TYPO3 Basics” in field “Include static (from extensions)” in your ROOT page.

To-Do list

  • Remove the possibility to add the fields “Keywords” and “Description” with this extension as soon as TYPO3 fixed this.
  • Also remove fix of p-tag in table cells when TYPO3 handles this correctly.
