Breaking: #82572 - RDCT functionality removed ¶
See Issue #82572
The short-link / redirect functionality based on the GET parameter
of TYPO3 Frontend requests
has been removed from TYPO3.
Along, all functionality related to evaluating
is not evaluated anymore.
The following PHP methods have been removed:
The eighth property of the constructor of TypoScriptFrontendController is not evaluated anymore,
also the public property
is removed as it is not set anymore.
The corresponding database table
has been dropped.
Substitution logic can be found in the TER extension
When calling TYPO3 Frontend via
the RDCT GET parameter is not evaluated
will result in a fatal PHP error.
Accessing the now non-existent property
will trigger a PHP notice, as well
as setting up a new instance of
with a eighth parameter.
Accessing the database table
will also lead to unexpected results as this table
does not exist in new installations anymore.
Affected Installations ¶
Any TYPO3 instance handling data via the
database table or creating short links
The TER extension
contains all previous functionality handled via a simple hook. An upgrade
wizard within the Install Tool will check if the database table is filled and downloads the extension
It is recommended to use a third-party short-url or redirect extension which provides a richer feature set.
