Breaking: #83265 - Dropped support for setting "typeNum" via id GET Parameter in Frontend¶
The functionality to add the possible page
typeNum to the "id" GET/POST Parameter has been removed.
Previously it was possible to call TYPO3 Frontend via
index.php?id=23.13 (separated with a dot)
which resolved in the page ID being "23" and the typeNum set to 13.
This functionality is a leftover from 2003, to shorten the URL and avoid multiple GET parameters.
Instead, today it is common to use
index.php?id=23&type=13 which TYPO3 uses internally everywhere
since TYPO3 v4.0.
Calling Frontend URLs via
index.php?id=23.13 - adding the typeNum with a dot - will result in a PageNotFound exception.
Installations with multiple "typeNum" TypoScript values, and with very old settings and custom built URLs for the Frontend.
Use typolink functionality in TypoScript, or Fluid to build your URLs properly in the format
