New in version 12.0

This PSR-14 event replaces the following hooks:

  • $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['TYPO3\CMS\Workspaces\Service\WorkspaceService']['hasPageRecordVersions']
  • $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['TYPO3\CMS\Workspaces\Service\WorkspaceService']['fetchPagesWithVersionsInTable']

The PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Controller\Event\AfterPageTreeItemsPreparedEvent allows prepared page tree items to be modified.

It is dispatched in the \TYPO3\CMS\Backend\Controller\Page\TreeController class after the page tree items have been resolved and prepared. The event provides the current PSR-7 request object as well as the page tree items. All items contain the corresponding page record in the special _page key.


New in version 13.1

Tree node labels can be defined which offer customizable color markings for tree nodes. They also require an associated label for improved accessibility. Each node can support multiple labels, sorted by priority, with the highest priority label taking precedence over others.

A label can also be assigned to a node via user TSconfig. Please note that only the marker for the label with the highest priority is rendered. All additional labels will only be added to the title of the node.

Status information

New in version 13.1

Tree nodes can incorporate status information. These details serve to indicate the status of nodes and provide supplementary information. For instance, if a page undergoes changes within a workspace, it will display an indicator on the respective tree node. Additionally, the status is appended to the node's title. This not only improves visual clarity but also enhances information accessibility.

Each node can accommodate multiple status information, prioritized by severity and urgency. Critical messages take precedence over other status notifications.

New in version 13.0

The PHP attribute \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Attribute\AsEventListener has been introduced to tag a PHP class as an event listener. Alternatively, or if you need to be compatible with older TYPO3 versions, you can also register an event listener via the Configuration/Services.yaml file. Switch to an older version of this page for an example or have a look at the section Implementing an event listener in your extension.
