You can also choose a "Title" for your link, that will appear when the user stops with the mouse on the link.

In addition to that, there are a few preprogrammed buttons you can use to indicate your link. Check out the options indicated by the black circle. >>Here you can see how they will look like.

Uploading Youtube Videos with Parameters

When Youtube parameters like autoplay, start and end position or “rel” (relations, which videos shall be shown next) are added to a video on Youtube, they are included to the uplink and saved for every further use of the video in TYPO. E.g. when second 10 is defined as the start position, this will be saved to the video (e.g. and set as default whenever the video is used.

  • Parameters of YouTube videos can be changed in the filelist without uploading them again.
  • Very important: Please always check the references of the videos first, as the parameters are then applied everywhere, even on product detail pages. Please use this very carefully.
  • The same video may only appear once in a filelist folder.
  • If you need it in different places with different parameters, you have to upload it to a different folder.
  • It is still possible to adapt the parameters of a video that was uploaded. You can change the settings on the page you are inserting the video. Also the meta data that were given to the video can be overwritten here.

  • Create additional imageareas to create more clickable areas.

There is an option to add a sidebar to each of your pages. It's called a "Burger Menu".

To add it you just need to fill in a header in your content element which will be shown in the sidebar and enable the "show in section menu" option at the bottom of the appearance tab.


If your header is too long or you want a different one in the sidebar use the alternative header as header on the page and the header as the one shown in the Burger Menu.


Special Case: Insert Record Element

If you want to add a Insert Record element it's not possible to show the header of the inserted element. But you could add a title by using the box "Name" which will be only available in the Burger Menu but not in the body text of the page.

Then fill in all the gernal information like it's described in "How do I set up an element including text, media and links?"

To get a colored text first write down the text you want to be colored. Then mark the text passage/ word.

After marking it open the "Text Style" drop down menu in the red box at the left. And choose your color.

Your text/ word appears in the color you chose.

The only thing you need to mind is the order you format your text. 

It's not working if you first choose a bold text and a heading and after that a color.
