ModifyHrefLangTagsEvent

New in version 10.3.

Event to alter the hreflang tags just before they get rendered.

The class TYPO3\CMS\Seo\HrefLang\HrefLangGenerator has been refactored to be a listener (identifier ‘typo3-seo/hreflangGenerator’) to the newly introduced event. This way the system extension seo still provides hreflang tags but it is now possible to simply register after or instead of the implementation.

Example

An example implementation could look like this:

EXT:my_extension/Configuration/Services.yaml

services:
  Vendor\MyExtension\HrefLang\EventListener\OwnHrefLang:
    tags:
      - name: event.listener
        identifier: 'my-ext/ownHrefLang'
        after: 'typo3-seo/hreflangGenerator'
        event: TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\Event\ModifyHrefLangTagsEvent

With after and before, you can make sure your own listener is executed after or before the given identifiers.

EXT:my_extension/Classes/HrefLang/EventListener/OwnHrefLang.php

namespace Vendor\MyExtension\HrefLang\EventListener;

use TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\Event\ModifyHrefLangTagsEvent;

class OwnHrefLang
{
   public function __invoke(ModifyHrefLangTagsEvent $event): void
   {
      $hrefLangs = $event->getHrefLangs();
      $request = $event->getRequest();

      // Do anything you want with $hrefLangs
      $hrefLangs = [
         'en-US' => 'https://example.org',
         'nl-NL' => 'https://example.org/nl'
      ];

      // Override all hrefLang tags
      $event->setHrefLangs($hrefLangs);

      // Or add a single hrefLang tag
      $event->addHrefLang('de-DE', 'https://example.org/de');
    }
}
