TYPO3 Basics: Edit page properties

In older versions of TYPO3, a page called Home is created when you've successfully completed the installation with the install tool. In recent versions of TYPO3 this page isn't there, but I recommend you read the info below as it contains important information about editing pages (and therefore other content elements as well). The "home" page below is also called the "root page", more about that later. Before you create the page tree, we will show you how to edit and rename this page. There are several ways to do this.

The most easy way to rename a page is to double click on it in the page tree, after which you will be able to change the page title:

Press enter when you're finished editing. In this example, we will change the page title to "Root page".

To edit all page properties (page title, page type, access rights...), you can use the edit icon (pencil). First, click on "List" if you're not in List mode. Then either right click on the page title to access the editing menu and click on the pencil to edit the properties, or left click on the page title and click on the pencil on top of the editing window, as indicated here:

Kind reminder! This tutorial has been tested with and updated for TYPO3 v10. Please keep in mind that the tutorial has once been set up for TYPO3 v6. It follows some deprecated conventions. If so, this will be mentioned in the tutorial.
