This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and will be deleted by December 31st, 2020. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.
Insert Plugin (List)¶
Plugins correspond to the list-type content element (the "list" meaning
the list of all plugins). The exact type of plugin used by a given
list-type content element is stored in the
list_type field of
the "tt_content" table.
Thus for rendering the list-type content element is one big
CASE object using the
list_type field as key.
When plugins are registered, the appopriate code is automatically added
to this main CASE object so that rendering requests
can be dispatched to the plugin's class.
Configuration of the plugin itself resides in
Some very old plugins however (like "tt_board") are still registered
"manually" by including all their configuration in a top-level object.
