SysFolder

Note: Not available on the Medschool server.

A sysFolder is a way to organize your pages.  It's much like a file folder in Windows Explorer or Mac Finder.

The icon for a SysFolder is much like the folder icon on a PC or Mac.

Although it is unlikely you would ever hide a SysFolder or set it to display/hide on a certain date, it is possible to do this.

SysFolders do not show up in your menu on your site, nor can you link to them.  

If you try to link to a SysFolder you will find that it is grayed out in the Insert/Modify Link dialog box.

See Page properties - SysFolder for more information on what options or attributes you can give a SysFolder.

Sysfolder page icons

The sysfolder can be visible or hidden but displays the same icon.  You can have pages accessible to users inside a sysfolder, therefore you can hide it (and them).

Properties

Note: This page type is not available on the Medschool server.

General Tab

  1. Type - this would change the standard page to another of the different page types available.  You can choose Standard, Shortcut, Mountpoint, External URL, SysFolder, Recycler or Visual menu separator.
  2. Layout - this is unused by us
  3. Last Updated - There are places (Creighton Newscenter for example) that display the most recently updated news stories.  This field could be used for that.  However we use an internal field to check the most recently updated.  
  4. New until - this is just for editor housekeeping and is not used by Typo3.  You can enter a date in here if you want to do something to the page after this date.
  5. No search - Creighton does not use Typo3's internal search.  The size of the Typo3 installation is so large that using Typo3's internal search caused Typo3 to stutter, cough and occasionally crawl to a stop.  If we did use the internal search, this would exclude the current page from those results.
  6. Hide page - If the page is hidden it can only be accessed through typo3, it will not be available to the public
  7. Title (or pagetitle) - the actual name of the page.  This is what people will see in the address of the site and page.  Please see Naming pages for more information.  The field will hold up to 255 characters.
