4.1 Create text element
A list based on tabs, contains all different elements. They are divided into different types of elements:
- Typical page content; here you can find text-, image-, bullet list- and table elements.
- Special elements; this contains different form elements and also the HTML element for inserting regular HTML-code.
- Flexible content; contains special elements that are created for your site
- Plugins; Modules installed on you TYPO3 website.
We will now create a "Regular Text Element". (Fig. 24)
An information form will now appear. It contains three tabs; General (1), Access (2) and Appearance (3). Under the General tab fill out the header (4), this will appear at the top of the element in the front end. It is possible to choose different types of headings or hide it, so it will not appear in the frontend (5). Below these fields you will find the text editor (6) which is described in the next section. (Fig. 25)
The text editor (RTE) works just like a scaled down Word document, and the text will appear on the website, as you see it. Make it bold, italic or insert bullet lists and tables. If you copy text from a Word document or another website, make sure you remove its formatting before you paste it into the RTE. (Fig. 26)
