Breaking: #64696 - Content Element "search" moved to legacy extension

See forge#64696


The TYPO3 default search functionality, which was based on the FORM and SEARCHRESULTS ContentObjects and the content element CType=search itself has been moved to the legacy extension EXT:compatibility6.


Content elements of the Type "Search" are gone and will no longer be rendered in the frontend unless EXT:compatibility6 is loaded. TypoScript using SEARCHRESULTS directly will return nothing.

Affected installations

Any installation using the simple "search" content element or the SEARCHRESULTS ContentObject directly will break.


For TYPO3 CMS 7, installing EXT:compatibility6 brings back the existing functionality. For the long term the affected installations should be migrate to a better suited solution for searching.
