Breaking: #74375 - fe_users.image migrated to FAL

See forge#74375


The Frontend User field "image" was previously handled via images located under uploads/pics/, as simple file references, not able to handle duplicate images etc.

The field is now set up to add references of the File Abstraction Layer avoiding the need to copy all images to uploads/pics/.


Using the fe_users.image field in the frontend or backend may result in unexpected behaviour.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 installation using the field "image" within the database table "fe_users", common in third-party extensions using the field for storing images for frontend users (like mm_forum).


Use the File Abstraction Layer for output and deal with rendering or changing images for frontend users.

Use the migration wizard provided in the install tool to migrate existing data to proper file references.
