Feature: #86457 - TCA Type Slug adds a prepending slash¶
See Issue #86457
The new TCA type slug field now hard-codes a slash as a prefix for all pages, as this is mandatory for URL resolving and ensuring a uniqueness within a site.
However, for slug types within regular records, it is not necessary to do so, therefore the slash is never prepended on a “regular” slug field.
If - in some special cases - the “slug” field should contain a slash (due to e.g. nested categories
with human readable url path segments), a new option
prependSlash is added to TCA type slug.
Third-party extensions using the slug field now receive a slug value without a slash, and
can use this as a regular - sanitized - slug field. It is however recommended to use the
uniqueInPid eval option to ensure uniqueness.
If a nested record structure is given, it is recommended to use the new option
by setting it to
'type' => 'slug', 'config' => [ 'generatorOptions' => [ 'fields' => ['title'], ] 'fallbackCharacter' => '-', 'prependSlash' => true, 'eval' => 'uniqueInPid' ]
