What does it do?

The extension adds a module to the help section in the backend of your installation. You can define a page ID, which is loaded into this module. The idea is, that you can provide your editors an entry point, into the editors documentation.

Basically you write the documentation about content elements and functions in the backend and use the frontend rendering to display it.


The extension configuration can be set up in the extension configuration.

TYPO3 V8: Extension Manager -> in2help -> Settings TYPO3 V9 or newer: Settings -> Extension Configuration -> in2help


  • PID of Pattern Page: basic.designPatternPid (int+) -> the PID of the page which contains the Design Pattern. This a page in the page tree, which is the entry point to the editors documentation.
  • FE-Domain: basic.domain (text): Add a domain for the frontend rendering (optional if FE domain is different to BE domain - e.g.


Adjust page rendering

In order to provide the best experience for your editors, you should try to keep the header of your layout small. You could hide elements, which are just ornaments.
