Root content extension for Contao Open Source CMS
The extension allows to create root-page aware content in your Contao layouts.
Install the bundle via Composer:
composer require terminal42/contao-rootcontent
There's absolutely nothing to configure :-)
There are two options to create root-page aware content.
Create articles in the root page
The extension allows to create articles in the root page. Here's how it works:
- Edit your theme and add custom content sections. Each theme can have multiple sections with root content.
- Add an article to a root page. Contrary to regular articles, you cannot enter a name but select one of the sections from your theme.
- Create a root-content module in your theme and select the section you want to output.
- Place the new module anywhere in your page layout.
Limit front end modules per root page
For each front end module, there is a new setting to limit it for one or multiple root pages. This way you can create language-aware modules. Simply place all of them in your page layout and only the respective ones will be rendered one at a time.
