How to get TYPO3 extension configuration at TypoScript constants?

Category : Extensions , Extensions , By : Nilesh Malankiya

According to TYPO3 standard, It's best practice to configure the ext_conf_template.txt file into your custom TYPO3 extension - to provide global TYPO3 configuration. In such situation, if you want to get TYPO3 extension configuration to your template (via TypoScript constants), then perform below steps.


// setup.typoscript
plugin.yourextension.settings {
    imageTypes =
    imageMaxSize =

// ext_localconf.php

// Extension Settings Constants register for the use in basic constants:
if (version_compare(TYPO3_branch, '9.0', '>=')) {
    $nsHelpdeskExtConf = $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXTENSIONS']['yourextension'];
} else {
    $nsHelpdeskExtConf = unserialize($GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXT']['extConf']['yourextension']);

// Add TypoScript Constants
    'plugin.tx_nshelpdesk_helpdesk.imageMaxSize =
    ' . $nsHelpdeskExtConf['imageMaxSize']
    . "\n plugin.tx_nshelpdesk_helpdesk.imageTypes = "
    . $nsHelpdeskExtConf['imageTypes']


Now you can use this TypoScript constant to your Fluid-templates or TypoScript-configuration
