Deprecation: #95322 - Legacy Element Browser logic

See Issue #95322

Description

The hook $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['typo3/browse_links.php']['browserRendering'] has been marked as deprecated as it has been superseded by the ElementBrowser API, introduced in TYPO3 v7.6.

Calling the backend routing endpoint “wizard_element_browser” called via ?mode=wizard or ?mode=rte has been marked as deprecated.

Impact

Calling the backend routing endpoint “wizard_element_browser” called via ?mode=wizard or ?mode=rte will trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Accessing the Element Browser with a registered hook will also trigger a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error.

Affected Installations

TYPO3 installations with legacy code (such as an old element browser hook) or with old links to “wizard_element_browser” prior to TYPO3 v8 which hasn’t been updated yet.

Migration

Use the Element Browser API, introduced in TYPO3 v7.6 instead of the deprecated hook $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['typo3/browse_links.php']['browserRendering'].

Instead of referencing “wizard_element_browser” for accessing the wizard, the link wizard with BE Routing Endpoint “wizard_link” should be used.
