Besides the page, the list is one of the most important modules for an editor. In the list view, you can see different data sets that are located on a page. Where normally the columns with contents are, you find the lists.

Under page content you will find the same content elements that are shown in the page view and that are visible in the frontend of the website. Other data records that are not visible in the frontend are also listed. These may include categories or records for job offers, for instance. Each record belongs to a record group.

The TYPO3 modules List and Filelist are to be distinguished from each other. In the List module you can create and edit records and content elements. In the Filelist, on the other hand, media such as images and videos as well as other files are uploaded in the TYPO3 backend in order to link them to content elements afterwards. This allows you to create page content on your website that contains media as well as text. Both modules use the clipboard to move a record or multiple records, which we present in more detail in the filelist tutorial.

In addition, the List module should not be confused with a list in a text, which you can create in the RTE (Rich Text Editor).

List View

In the list view, only those records/lists are displayed that are located on the backend page selected in the page tree. Therefore, if you select a different page, you will also see other records.

As in the page module, each record can be edited. The options that are always displayed are: View webpage, Edit record, Hide record and Delete record. The extended view exposes more settings. Depending on the type of record, different setting options are available. If you want all options to be displayed, check the box 'Extended view'. With the three dots behind the first options, this view can be folded in and out for individual records.

Create new record

Create a new page

We have already explained how to add new pages in the page tree tutorial. The possibility via the list module is not mentioned there, because in most cases it is not practical.

But if you like to work with the list often, this is a convenient way to create new pages. Because you can choose directly whether the new page should be inserted after the current page (same level), in the current page (subpage) or in a position of your choice in the page tree.

Create a new content element

As in the page module, page contents can also be created in the list. Two options are available to insert content elements:

  • Page Content: Automatically creates the content element Header only. A different type of content element can be selected under Type.
  • Click here for wizzard: A context window opens with all available content elements, as you know it from the page module. Select and click the desired TYPO3 content element to add it.

Content elements are edited in the same way as in the page module. The position of the content elements can be set after creation with the arrows in the extended view.

Comments System

  • Comment: Inserts a comment or sub-comment that is visible on the website.
  • Thread Notification: A user can be registered for notifications for a specific thread.


For job offers, you must specify certain contents, which must first be created as records. The records for job advertisements should be conveniently located on one page or in a folder. The following contents can be created: Company, Contact, Department and Experience Level. The job ads can also be filtered according to these criteria.

You can also create job offers or enter applications in the list module.

Mail Templates

With Mail Templates you create new templates for automatically sent mails.

News System

News and blog posts can be assigned to authors. New authors can be created and managed via the list. For the sake of clarity, all authors should be found on one page or in one folder.

sgalinski Cookie Optin

Here you can access the editing mode of the sgalinski Cookie Opt-In via the list.

Shop System

You can also create shop relevant content with the list module. The records should be located in one place in the page tree. According to the following criteria, customers can filter articles, define options in the ordering process and, respectively, it is also the settings that you can assign to your products: country, currency, payment type, product category, shipping type, VAT and voucher.

It is also possible to create products or enter orders into the system.

System Records

Using the system records, for example, you can add categories that are important for a wide range of content on the page and when creating content elements.

There is a detailed explanation of the file collection in the context of file links.


You can use the clipboard to copy or move records and/or elements. You can work with single selection or multiple selection. The clipboard in the list module works in the same way as in the filelist. In the documentation on the clipboard in the filelist you can see in detail how to use the clipboard to move page contents and records.
