The constant further development of the content management system TYPO3 is important as the software's security needs to be kept on a current high level and the user-friendliness can be improved steadily. But with that, changes in the backend come along that might unsettle editors. Especially when version 4.2, which is shown in our series of tutorials, is compared to the version 4.5 LTS a lot of changes can be named, such as the complete redesign of the backend, restructuring in the forms of the page properties and page contents, renaming of fields, changes in the file list, in frontend editing, and so on.
Therefore, we have produced a video in the former TYPO3 version 4.5 LTS, which was a so called long term support version that has been maintained for more than three years.
The video about version 4.5 shows the most important differences in comparison to TYPO3 version 4.2. When watching the video, you will find out that the basic functions for editors in default remained widely the same. Also when comparing the two introduction videos of version 4.2 and 4.5 LTS you will see that the operation methods have hardly changed.
The videos about version 4.5 LTS serve as a good addition to the video tutorials which you can also continue using to the full extent when working with newer versions than TYPO3 4.2. If you know an older version of TYPO3, and want to update your system, the videos help you to train on the new version easily.
