TYPO3 Basics: Basic file folders

Before doing anything else, create some file folders, which you will use for your images, template and css files. You can create these folders in TYPO3. Click on "Filelist" in the "File" menu, click on the "fileadmin" folder and use the green plus sign to create new folders. In the "fileadmin" folder, you create 2 new folders called "images" and "templates". In the "templates" folder, you create 4 new folders called "css", "images", "layouts" and "partials". The "layouts" and "partials" folders will only be used if you choose Fluid as your templating solution.

The first images folder will be used for images which are part of the content. The second images folder will be used for images which are part of the template (backgrounds, header images). You'll end up with this:
