Installation via Contao Manager

Search for terminal42/contao-rootcontent in the Contao Manager and add it to your installation. Apply changes to update the packages.

Manual installation

Add a composer dependency for this bundle. Therefore, change in the project root and run the following:

composer require terminal42/contao-rootcontent

Depending on your environment, the command can differ, i.e. starting with php composer.phar … if you do not have composer installed globally.

Then, update the database via the contao:migrate command or the Contao install tool.


There are multiple features to create root-page aware content.

Create articles in the root page

The extension allows to create articles in the root page. Here's how it works:

  1. Edit your theme and add custom content sections. Each theme can have multiple sections with root content.
  2. Add an article to a root page. Contrary to regular articles, you cannot enter a name but select one of the sections from your theme.
  3. Create a root-content module in your theme and select the section you want to output.
  4. Place the new module anywhere in your page layout.

Limit front end modules per root page

For each front end module, there is a new setting to limit it for one or multiple root pages. This way you can create language-aware modules. Simply place all of them in your page layout and only the respective ones will be rendered one at a time.

<body> css class per root page

Add css classes to the root page and they will be inherited through all pages.
