Some content elements are used more often than others - the most frequently used content elements can be found in the Typical content element group. When adding new elements, this group is displayed first by default.

Header Only

With the content element Header Only, you can insert a heading, just as the name says. You can use different heading formats to structure content and make it more accessible to the user. And in the backend you get a better overview by using headlines yourself.

Available boxes

Header Enter the heading in this field.
Type Select a heading format/level and use it to structure content.
Alignment Specify the alignment of the heading.
Date If a date is selected here, it appears under the heading (and subheading).
Link In this field you link the heading (internal or external).
Subheader A subheading appears below the main heading in the next smaller heading format.
Content Element Link The entire content element is displayed as a link.

Text & Media

The content element Text & Media is used especially often when editing a TYPO3 page. With this element you simply insert body text with images and headings. The Rich Text Editor (RTE) enables intuitive working with texts. With the Image Editor of TYPO3, images can also be adjusted quickly.

Rich Text Editor

The General tab contains the same fields as the header element. In addition, you will find the Rich Text Editor (RTE) in the lower area. We have dedicated separate manuals to the text editor and the image editor. At this point we will only give a short introduction.

The RTE allows intuitive text input, as it is similar to well-known text editing programs such as Word or Pages. You enter a text in the free field and adjust it using the options located above the text field.

Most of the symbols should be familiar. If this is not the case, you can find out the function of a button in the mouseover. To do this, simply stay for a moment with the mouse pointer over the corresponding symbol.

Tab: Media

The Media tab is only found in the content element Text & Media. With the Add media file button, media files (in most cases images) can be selected from the filelist. Before you can add files, they must be uploaded in the Filelist.

Under Media Adjustments you will find options to adjust all media in the current item:

Width/Height If width or height should differ from the original file, the image will be scaled to the specified height/width in the original image ratio.
Border Activate/deactivate the border around the media items.
Position and Alignment Set the alignment of the image in relation to the text - even if there is no text, it may be useful to adjust the setting.
Number of Columns Specifies how many images are arranged in a row.
Enlarge on Click Determines whether the image in the front end is displayed enlarged when clicked.

Image Editor

Once you have added a file in the content element, options for further customizing the image appear. You can add alternative text, title and a description to each image and link the whole image.

Below you can open the image editor, which allows you to adjust the section of added images. For more information, see the Image Editor documentation.
