Upgrading to version 6.0.0¶
Following changes are made to the new version 6.0.0
Base url: For TYPO3 v9 compatibility the usage of sys_domain records was removed.
See TYPO3 Deprecation: #85892 - Various methods regarding sys_domain-resolving
Now pages for direct_mail requires a valid site configuration, which should contain a base url. This base url will also be used in all internal links contained in mail content.
For migration, check possible defined sys_domain records, and separate such direct_mail folders into different sites with corresponding site-configurations.
CLI: direct_mail_cli CommandLineController was removed
This class invoked mailer engine via CLI for mass sending of newsletters.
This class reqiured a BE-user with the name of _cli_direct_mail which is no longer necessary and may deleted.
Instantiating or requiring the PHP class direct_mail_cli, will result in PHP fatal error.
Mass sending of newsletters via CLI by invoking mailer engine is still possible. Requires you to change CLI command from
/ABS/PATH/TO/SITE/typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh direct_mail masssend to
/ABS/PATH/TO/BINARY/typo3 direct_mail:invokemailerengine Optional arguments like `masssend` are no longer supported, since this was the solely required argument in direct_mail_cli class. For help, execute following command to show current available options:
/ABS/PATH/TO/BINARY/ direct_mail:invokemailerengine --help
Global configuration option “content_doktypes” removed in TYPO3 v9
See TYPO3 Breaking: #82803
The outdated global configuration
$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['FE']['content_doktypes']filters Internal pages in the Direct Mail module to select a newsletter. This configuration will be ignored in the future.
Doktypes of spacers (199), recyclers (255) or folders (254) are excluded by default.
