Deprecation: #65938 - Discourage usage of "$TSFE->anchorPrefix"

See forge#65938


The property "anchorPrefix" within TypoScriptFrontendController is set to the relative path from the public site root when config.baseURL is set, and can be used to prefix local anchors with that prefix. The option has been marked as deprecated in favor of using config.absRefPrefix when this functionality is needed.

Affected installations

All installations or extensions relying on the TypoScriptFrontendController property "anchorPrefix" running with the TypoScript option config.baseURL enabled.


Use the PHP code below directly to fetch the information when needing baseURL and the anchorPrefix option.

GeneralUtility::getIndpEnv('TYPO3_REQUEST_URL'), strlen(GeneralUtility::getIndpEnv('TYPO3_SITE_URL'))

Alternatively, use config.absRefPrefix to achieve the same result.
