Feature: #86057 - Improved typolink / URL link generation¶
With new site-based handling, the de-facto standard GET parameter "L" (for language) became obsolete.
Instead, in order to create a link to a specific language via TypoScript's
a new parameter
typolink.language is introduced.
page.10 = TEXT page.10.value = Link to the page with the ID in the current language page.10.typolink.parameter = 23 page.20 = TEXT page.20.value = Link to the page with the ID in the language 3 page.20.typolink.parameter = 23 page.20.typolink.language = 3
Omitting the parameter
language will use the current language.
If a page is not available in the requested language, the link will not be generated,
however a fallback to the default language can be built, as the HMENU TypoScript functionality does.
Due to the new page-linking functionality, the following TypoScript settings are not necessary anymore and should be removed for TypoScript configurations on page trees with a site configuration:
Including the "L" parameter in
config.linkVars, as the L parameter is not evaluated for page requests with a site configuration.
config.absRefPrefixis only necessary for links to files or images, but not for page links, as they are always built against the absolute path, or - if
typolink.forceAbsoluteUrlis explicitly set. The option is set to
autoby default for site configuration TypoScripts, so this is not necessary anymore in regular installations.
One of the major strengths allows to link across sites / domains with specifically knowing all available languages of a different page tree. Using the
config.typolinkEnableLinksAcrossDomainsis not necessary anymore for TypoScript within a site configuration.
typolink.additionalParams = &L=1, this is automatically mapped to
typolink.language parameter, but if both are set, the
When generating links with
&L= query parameters, this parameter is stripped, and the correct base
URL for the site is fetched, and the query parameter is not added anymore.
By setting the target page ID via
typolink.parameter it is also possible to set the
page ID to a localized page ID, automatically resolving to the correct language if neither
typolink.additionalParams = L= is set.
