Dear TYPO3-Team,
I tried using the HorizontalRule and removed the entry HorizontalRule from the "removeButtons"-List. I got the Button to insert a HR and the preview in the editor showed an hr. But in the frontend, TYPO3 renders

<p>&lt;hr /&gt; </p>

I could not find. where to change this. Also I tried the same in different installations. All the same. This should be work out of the box, shouldn't it?

Thanks for have a look.
Bye and merry christmas

Joe Jones I guess you are using a customized RTE yaml file; on the three files shipped with TYPO3 (default.yaml, miminal.yaml, full.yaml) I have not found the horizontal rule listed on the removeButtons session; instead it is in the insert toolbargroup.

I was able to insert it with adding the toolbargroup "Insert" in this way:

      - { name: insert, groups: [ insert ] } 

Could you post your yaml config file?

Could you also check that hr is listed as an allowed tag inside the lists lib.parseFunc and lib.parseFunc_RTE ?

Hallo Riccardo,

sorry, that I answer that late. I got no notification from forge.typo3.org. Anyway, you rest my life. I work with TYPO3 for nearly 20 years, but I did not know enough about parseFunc_RTE. In deed, hr is not listed by default.

For all who needs the detailed solution:

lib {
    parseFunc_RTE {
        allowTags := addToList (hr)

Now it works and I have to note it for the next time :-)

Thank you

I am glad you solved your issue;

Maybe some extension or some Typoscript code removed it; I am looking at (just relevant lines)


lib.parseFunc {
   allowTags = {$styles.content.allowTags}


    allowTags= = a, abbr, acronym, address, article, aside, b, bdo, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, cite, code, col, colgroup, dd, del, dfn, dl, div, dt, em, font, footer, header, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, img, ins, kbd, label, li, link, meta, nav, ol, p, pre, q, s, samp, sdfield, section, small, span, strike, strong, style, sub, sup, table, thead, tbody, tfoot, td, th, tr, title, tt, u, ul, var

this is for both TYPO3 10 and 11

May I close this issue? Thank you.

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version deleted (next-patchlevel)

I close this issue for now; I am pretty sure that I am using an untouched version of lib.parseFunc and lib.parseFunc_RTE and both lists hr among the allowed Tags.

This is valid for both version 10 and 11

If you think that this is the wrong decision or experience there is still something missing, please reopen it or open a new issue with a reference to this one

Thank you
