Breaking: #77184 - Various TSFE properties removed

See forge#77184


The following public properties of the PHP class TypoScriptFrontendController have been removed.


  • defaultBodyTag

  • clientInfo

Additionally, the first parameter of the TypoScriptFrontendController constructor has no effect anymore and can be set to null.


Accessing or setting the properties will throw a PHP warning and have no effect anymore.

Affected Installations

Any installation working with the public property in a third-party extension or instantiating the TSFE object itself.


For any calls to $GLOBALS['TSFE']->TYPO3_CONF_VARS the global array $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS'] should be used.

For the property defaultBodyTag the according TypoScript settings can be used to override the body tag or the page title.

The information previously stored in the clientInfo property can be fetched via GeneralUtility::clientInfo().
