Speaking URL fragments (TYPO3 Extension)

Full documentation

You can find a more detailed documentation including several screenshots and how-tos on (HTML) and in the Documentation/ folder (ReST).


"Speaking URLs" are a must-have feature for web pages. TYPO3 v9 and newer provide the Routing feature for this. Former TYPO3 versions needed the third-party extensions RealURL or CoolUri.

TYPO3 also provides the navigational content elements "Section index" and "Section index of subpages from selected pages", which will build a list of pages and their included content elements.

These content elements will be linked by their unique id, e.g.:

It's working well, but it's not human-readable.

What does this extension do?

First of all, this extension provides human-readable URL fragments for TYPO3 content elements:

Furthermore, the extension allows to set anchor links next to the header. An editor can activate these with a checkbox for individual content elements.

New fields in TYPO3 content elements (backend)


  • Editors can set individual, human-readable fragment identifiers per content element.
  • Editors can use a button to automatically generate a fragment from the current header.
  • Editors can activate anchor links to headers per content element.
  • Scope: The human-readable fragment is used in Section Index menus, as well as for links in the RTE or TCA fields with renderType inputLink.
  • Fallback: If no custom fragment is given, or the header is hidden, the default fragment is used in rendered links.
  • Evaluation #1: Only supported characters are stored. Special characters are replaced.
  • Evaluation #2: All content elements on the same page will get a unique fragment identifier.
  • Error prevention: By default, the fragments are prepended with the uid of the content element.
  • Of course, the Fluid templates can be customized to your needs.
