This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.
The abundance of information available on large web sites makes it sometimes hard for visitors to find what they are looking for. A search engine helps, as well as a good navigation. Contexts can help improve the navigation by creating links between related pieces of information.
This extension is designed to help work with contexts, however they may be defined. The idea is to define contexts using TypoScript so that they can cover whole branches of a web site. The contexts can then be fetched using expressions.
This extension is used in the Tesseract project. Within this framework contexts can be retrieved inside Data Filters. It can also be used separately.
If you have any questions about this extension please ask questions in the TYPO3 English mailing list (typo3.english). You may also want to refer to the Tesseract Project web site (http://www.typo3-tesseract.com/) for support and tutorials.
