TYPO3 Video Tutorials for Editors
The collection of TYPO3 video tutorials for editors is currently being extended by a new series about the recent long term support version 6.2. Eventually this new series shall replace the existing videos in the last long term support version 4.5 and the complete series which consists of 21 consecutive videos, plus an introduction, in TYPO3 version 4.2. The video series is supplemented by TYPO3 test web sites in different versions, where you can easily put into practice what you see in the videos, try other functions, or simply test TYPO3. The test web site for the new series will be added, as soon as all videos are recorded. For easy orientation, the pages and content of the test web sites are setup as similar as possible to that of the videos series:
- test web site in TYPO3 6.1
- test web site in TYPO3 6.0
- test web site in TYPO3 4.5 LTS
- test web site in TYPO3 4.2 (version of the tutorial series)
Where TYPO3 offers different ways to do things, in most cases the videos will show only one of these - the one we consider the most efficient or easiest to learn.
New Video Series (TYPO3 6.2 LTS)
The list of videos of this new series for the long term support version 6.2 will be completed as soon as possible. As soon as a new video is ready, it will appear in the playlist on YouTube!

Videos in TYPO3 4.5 LTS
There are a couple of video tutorials for editors in the old long term support version 4.5 such as an introduction and an update video showing the differences between the LTS version 4.5 and version 4.2 in which the old video series for editors has been produced.
Besides the tutorials for editors, there are also videos for administrators you can watch on the TYPO3 YouTube channel.

TYPO3 4.5 LTS - Comparison to Version 4.2
Complete Video Series (Version 4.2)
Though in an older version - TYPO3 4.2 - this series still can be a help for editors working with one of the newer TYPO3 versions 4.x as most of the features and arrangements have not changed significantly. The differences towards 6.x are more crucial.
The video series shows slowly and step by step the knowledge a TYPO3 editor needs for daily work.
Instead of watching the videos online, you can download the whole series as a zip file: TYPO3 videos (download is being provided by an external web site).
It is planned to keep this series until the end of the lifetime of the current long term support version 4.5.
