Extend existing models

To extend an already existing extbase model with a detail view, e.g. news or job offers, and offer the evaluation of this records, easily complete the following two steps.

If the hreflang tag is enabled in TypoScript, the hreflang tag is set for all existing languages of the extended extbase item (not for the languages of the detail page). It checks the languages for the extbase item, which is given by the get parameter from the page TSconfig in step 2. If a fallback item is displayed because of sys_language_mode content_fallback, the hrefang tag will be removed and the canonical tag points to the url of the displayed fallback item.

. Add model in Page TSconfig

Add the following page TSconfig to the page with ID = 1.

tx_csseo {
        # new index and table name of the model
        1 = tx_myext_domain_model_mymod

        # if the get parameter is set in the URL the cs_seo properties will be shown
        1.enable = GP:tx_myext_pi1|mymod

        # if the model already has fields like title etc. define them as fallback
        1.fallback {

            # cs_seo title field fallback = mymod title field
            title = title

            # cs_seo description field fallback = mymod description field
            description = description

        # enable evaluation for news
        1.evaluation {
                # additional params to initialize the detail view, the pipe will be replaced by the uid
                getParams = &tx_myext_pi1[controller]=MyController&tx_myext_pi1[action]=MyAction&tx_myext_pi1[mymod]=|

                # detail pid for the current records, only if set the table will be available
                detailPid =

Clear the system cache and done. A new tab is in the backend visible called SEO.

2. Update the database

You need to update the database in install tool afterwards. We will automatically insert the following SQL.

CREATE TABLE tx_myext_domain_model_mymod (
        tx_csseo int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL
