The TYPO3 Documentation Team

Our main goal is comprehensive, relevant, up-to-date and easy to find documentation about TYPO3 products for all users.

The Documentation Team sets the stage for you - the community - to write great documentation. Though we do love to write and update documentation, the purpose of our team is to provide the TYPO3 community with the tools to improve documentation.  

This includes information about using the tools to write great documentation. We strongly encourage the community to get involved. If you want to start right now, skip to the Contribute section on this page!

Contribution Workflow

Did you know that contributing to the documentation has never been easier? That you are just one click away from starting a contribution yourself every time you visit a page on Every official manual is contained in a GitHub repository and can be edited by anyone with a GitHub account. You can also edit a page directly on GitHub. All you need for that is a browser. If you are familiar with using Git and Docker, you can clone the repository and edit and render locally instead.

Ways to Contribute

There are several ways to contribute and things you can do as a contributor:

Past Achievements

You can browse through the Documentation Changelogs to see past achievements. But do note that a significant number of these achievements were contributed by community members who were not Documentation Team members. But that is a good thing because that is what we want to do: Involve you in creating great documentation.

Responsibilities of the Documentation Team

The Documentation Team provides the following:

  • Information about how to write documentation

  • Support via the Slack channel #typo3-documentation: Answer questions about writing documentation and using the tools

  • Support the TYPO3 CMS Core Team and other teams in their documentation efforts

  • Rendering of official manuals and extensions on the documentation server via automated toolchain

  • Docker image for local rendering

  • Theme

  • Organize sprints for working on documentation related tasks

  • Promote the work by writing news on, tweeting and speaking at events

The following tasks were previously the responsibility of the documentation team and have now been redefined:

  • Translation of manuals: The Documentation Team can help others in matters concerning workflow and tools, but it concentrates its efforts on manuals in English.

  • The technical infrastructure is handled by the Server Team. Who will coordinate maintaining / migrating the content is yet to be defined.

  • The technical infrastructure is handled by the Server Team.

  • Writing content: Writing content must be a combined effort of the TYPO3 community.

  • Maintaining content: Content must continuously be updated and maintained. The long term goal is to put this in the hands of dedicated manual maintainers.
