Breaking: #88640 - Database field "sys_template.nextLevel" and TypoScript sublevel - inheritance removed¶
The database field
nextLevel of the database table
sys_template where TypoScript configuration
is stored, has been removed.
nextLevel was introduced in TYPO3 v3.x before TypoScript could be imported from
Nowadays, TypoScript conditions should be used much more instead of this
which is kind of a pseudo-condition.
The database field is removed, and not evaluated anymore in TypoScript compilation.
Requesting the database field in custom database queries will result in an SQL error.
TYPO3 installations that have
sys_template records with this flag activated,
or querying this database field in third-party extensions.
Check for existing
sys_template records having this flag activated by executing
this SQL command:
SELECT * FROM sys_template WHERE nextLevel>0 AND deleted=0;
before updating TYPO3 Core.
Replace the sys_template record (the uid of the record is stored in the "nextLevel" field) with a condition e.g.
[tree.level > 1] to add TypoScript for subpages.
