[TYPO3-english] How to view php code of a page

Thank you Steffen! I kinda guessed this far already.

The thing is that extensions might be pretty big source code wise, so going though all of the control flow might be time consuming. And I was thinkig may be TYPO3 knows some how which parts of the extension's source code are used on the given page. But now I think it was a wrong assumption. It seems to me now, that TYPO3 just calls main method of the extension and all the rest depends on the parameters that are passed with the request.

Any way thank you for help!

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Okay, can be different content elements / plugins attached to that page. Open the TYPO3 backend end navigate through the page tree to the page with id 8 (when you hover over the page icon, you get its ID displayed - or you can use the filter above the tree and enter 8). Then have a look, what plugins are used there. There should be at least one (which is not "Text", "Text with Image" or so..). These plugins originate from TYPO3 extensions, which are located in typo3conf/ext/. When you view the source code of the frontend output you might be also able to identify the used extension (search for "tx-"). Once you've located the used extension, you can have a look at its code in typo3conf/ext/your-ext-name/pi1/ (for old-school pi-base extensions) or typo3conf/ext/your-ext-name/Classes/ (for modern "extbase" MVC extensions).

I am a bit new to PHP world though and I am just learning about TYPO3 architecture, so my questions might sound a bit clueless.

As you do not have any clue about the basics of programming, this will be impossible for you. In general, the answer is yes. Most people use a debugger to debug strange behavior. They attach the debugger to the request and have a look at the control flow. At least for TYPO3 CMS, there is not specific PHP code for a special ID, besides the usual code to render a page.
