This package is auto-updated.

A simple wrapper extension to integrate Reinmar's ckeditor-plugin-descriptionlist into TYPO3's default editor ckeditor.


  • composer require kitzberger/rte-ckeditor-dl
  • Install extension via extension manager in the backend

Load PageTS

Simply load the RTE configuration default+dl provided by this extension via PageTS to the root page of your page tree. This'll set the default RTE configuration enhanced by this plugin as a default for all RTEs in that page tree.

Custom RTE config

Alternatively to enabling the default+dl configuration you can create your own RTE configuration and simply import the yaml file as described below.


$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['RTE']['Presets']['custom'] = 'EXT:custom/Configuration/RTE/Default.yaml';


# Load default processing options + the dl plugin
  - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Processing.yaml" }
  - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Editor/Base.yaml" }
  - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Editor/Plugins.yaml" }
  - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor_dl/Configuration/RTE/Plugin.yaml" }

Trouble shooting

Weird <p> tags show up in markup like this here?

		<p class="bodytext">Bar</p>
		<p class="bodytext">Bat</p>
	<p class="bodytext">&nbsp;</p>

Tweak TYPO3's pareFunc_RTE a little to get rid of that:

lib.parseFunc_RTE.externalBlocks.dl.callRecursive >
lib.parseFunc_RTE.externalBlocks.dl.stdWrap.parseFunc =< lib.parseFunc
