TYPO3 is one of the most powerful Enterprise Content Management Systems on the market, and it is based on open source.
To check the version of TYPO3 your installation is running on, log in to your TYPO3 website and then check the title tag at the top of the web browser. It will read your website name and the TYPO3 version (Img. 1).
For version 7+ the version is visible in the TYPO3 interface (Img. 2).
After the website is launched, the working address is removed. To log in after launch, go to your website address and add /typo3 to the address (ex www.company.com/typo3).
It is possible to "close" the page tree field, to optimize space, while working.
You will find a small ruler tab in the middle, as shown in the image. Click on it to expand the page tree field.
We recommend that images used on your website should be 1280 pixels and up, to get the best quality on the front end. The images can be resized and croped inside the image elements to fit the website.
Also keep in mind that the largest shown size of an image might not always be in the desktop view, it is sometimes the largest in mobile/tablet view.
Just keep in mind to keep the weight (KB/MB) of the image low.
Regular content is created directly on a page. News, on the other hand, is created in a system folder found in the page tree and then published through an extension, also called plugin. This also means that you are not able to edit news from the fronend-editing functions.
The 'Speaking URL path segment' can be used to alter the web address of a page. If left blank, the page title will be based on the page title.
For example, you have a page called 'Typical page content'. The address for this will be http://www.domain.com/typical-page-content. But say that you wish it to have this title as the page title and what is shown in the meny, but the address should only be 'Page content', then add the text page-content in the field 'Speaking URL path segment' to change the address.
One are of use for this is also when creating a campaign or landing page.
You are probably experiencing a cache memory issue.
Your web browser saves information from the websites you visit, to be able to load them faster, and the cache memory normally empties once per day. But this means that the changes you just made in TYPO3, might not show up when you reload the page.
To clear the cache memory, you can either go to your web brower settings and clear it manually, or you can clear it with a keyboard command for the page you are currently on.
To do the latter, it differs between a PC and Mac.
Hold the Ctrl button on your keyboard, and then press the F5 button (using just the F5 button will only refresh the page).
Hold the command (cmd) and shift buttons, then press R (shift and R button will only refresh the page).
