  1. Install the extension using Composer: composer req pixelant/qbank
  2. Activate the extension in TYPO3 by using the Admin Tools > Extensions module or by running vendor/bin/typo3 extension:activate qbank; vendor/bin/typo3cms database:updateschema in the command line.


In order for the extension to work, it must be configured. In the TYPO3 Backend, navigate to Admin Tools > Settings > Extension Configuration > qbank and set the required global configuration options in the "Basic" tab. Configuration options in the "Optional" tab are not required, but enable additional functionality, such as usage reporting.

Configuration options can also be set using environment variables. These will override any setting made in the Extension Configuration module.

Site and language configuration

Deployment sites can also be configured on a per-site and per-site-language basis.

Site configuration

In the TYPO3 Backend, navigate to Site Management > Sites > {Your site} > Qbank tab. You can set the field "Deployment sites" to a comma-separated list of deployment sites. If empty, the value is inherited from the global extension configuration or environment variables.

Per-site configuration of deployment site.

Site language configuration

In the TYPO3 Backend, navigate to Site Management > Sites > {Your site} > Languages tab. Select the language you would like to edit and find the "QBank deployment sites" option. You can set the field to a comma-separated list of deployment sites. If empty, the value is inherited from the site's "Deployment sites" field, global extension configuration, or environment variables.

Per-site-language configuration of deployment site.
