TYPO3 11



What is it?

The Enhanced Backend Extension improves the user experience (UI/UX) in the TYPO3 backend, provides customization options for editors and enhances the look and feel of TYPO3 so that it represents a modern and intuitive eCMS.

It includes these features:

  • Content tree for quick editing content element of a page
  • Many UI/UX optimizations you can choose individually
  • Three customization presets in user settings, e.g. TYPO3-a-like or a complete new modern backend
  • Possibility to combine features as many optimizations as you want


Enhanced backend comes as a TYPO3 extension for the TYPO3 backend. It appears as new tab "enhanced backend" in user settings. All settings are user specific.

  • Install extension via composer
  • Login to your TYPO3 backend
  • Switch to your personal user settings at the right top corner (profile image)
  • A new tab enhanced backend is available
  • Choose a preset to quickly activate a collection of helpful features that are right for you
    • no changes: TYPO3 default backend
    • Vanilla+: Based on the corporate design of TYPO3. Functionalities are not changed or added. There are only minor UI optimizations.
    • Modern: Activates all available features and optimizations of the Enhanced Backend extension. The UI/UX is based on current developments and there is a content tree that allows quick navigation over all content on a page.
  • Of course, all features can be selected individually


With composer based TYPO3 installations, enhanced backend is easily added to the project.
