This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated.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 'intro' elementΒΆ

The content element should have these fields:


On top there is the usual 'general' block.

Next there is the option to set a frame (which we need in this template to set the width of a content element in the grid).

For the header we don't need all the fields of a normal 'header' or 'headers' palette, so we'll have to make our own palette.

The last part of the 'General' tab is an RTE field.

On the 'Access' tab are the usual fields to determine visibility for frontend user and other related fields.

In the definition is also the beginning of the configuration of a tab 'Extended' . This will be added in case other extensions add fields to all TCA types. These will be added at the end of the field list and will thus end up in the 'Extended' tab. Tabs without fields are hidden by default, so the tab 'Extended' is only visible if an extension adds fields this way.

A new feature in TYPO3 CMS 6.2 is that we can simply change the TCA by putting files in Configuration/TCA/Overrides/ . The TCA in these files will be added to the cached TCA for extra speed. By convention we'll simply use as filename <tableName>.php ; in our case: Configuration/TCA/Overrides/tt_content.php .
