Breaking: #64696 - Content Element "search" moved to legacy extension¶
The TYPO3 default
search functionality, which was based on the
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.
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.
