Visual menu separator

A visual menu separator can be used to help organize your pagetree within Typo3.

In this site it separates the general reference area from the main area of the site.

However it can also be used within your menu.  

NOTE: A visual separator will not even show up in your menuing unless you ask a member of the webteam to add it.  The default menu creation in Typo3 does not include it.  However it is easy for us to add so if you wish to utilize it don't hesitate to contact the webteam.

See Page properties - Visual Menu Separator for more information on what options or attributes you can give a Recycler page.

Properties

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.
