Welcome to the TYPO3 training exercises.

To view these exercises go to

With TYPO3 you use your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chome etc.) both to view pages and to edit them. In order to do these training exercises you will need to keep at least three tabs open; one to read the instructions, one to perform the edits and one to view the results. 

Note: Sometimes TYPO3 pops up additional windows or tabs. Some browsers prevent this by default. You will need to enable pop-ups for Ask if you do not know how to set you browser up to allow this.

There is a brief PowerPoint introduction to TYPO3 here.


Since this tutorial was written several of the icons used by TYPO3 have changed.
