Due to the new version of TYPO3, the syllabus of the certificates and the SkillTree needed an update. Some skills were created new, some were rejected, all of them were reviewed. And as we don’t want to keep you on tenterhooks, here is the preview of the new skills of TCCE v9!
I know what canonical links are and when they should be used.
I know about robot instructions in metadata.
I know the relevance of an XML Sitemap of a website.
The editor is aware of the relevance of duplicate content on websites and the consequences for search engine results. By using canonical link properly, he knows how to prevent duplicate content issues. Furthermore, the editor has knowledge about forcing robots not to index the content of a page, and/or not scan it for links to follow. The editor knows what an XML Sitemap is and that these are used to give search engines information of a website structure.
I know what social media platforms are.
I know that social media specific content, such as Twitter Cards or Facebook posts, can be used to enhance the content of a provided link to a website.
Social media platforms are a collective of online communication channels used for community-based input, content-sharing, collaboration and interaction. Links that are placed on social media platforms such as Twitter or Facebook, can be enriched with additional information about the targeted website and encourage the user to follow the link.

TYPO3 URL Redirects
The editor knows which purpose redirects have in TYPO3 and how to create them for a specific page in TYPO3.

I know what a CSV file is.
I know how to open and edit a CSV file (with text editors or a table calculation program).
I know the different common delimiter, enclosure and escape characters.
I know the different file encodings (latin1 / utf-8).
CSV files are used to exchange data between different computer systems. The editor must know how these files are structured so that they can be read out and additionally read by TYPO3 without errors.
Admin Panel Basics
I know about the existence of the admin panel and that a TYPO3 integrator can unlock this for me.
I know how to find information like the page ID in the info tab.
I can use the admin panel in the frontend for finding and opening a page in the backend.
I can simulate another date or another frontend user group.
I can clear or deactivate the page cache.
The admin panel can be activated by the TYPO3 Integrator for editors and used to simulate a different time or group of users in the frontend. In addition, a button helps to find and open the corresponding page in the backend via a URL.
