Breaking: #79622 - Removal of Fluid Styled Content Menu ViewHelpers

See Issue #79622

Description

Fetching data directly in the view is not recommended and the temporary solution of menu ViewHelpers has been replaced by its successor, the menu processor that is based on HMENU.

Menu ViewHelpers have been moved to the compatibility7 extension, and are replaced in the core menu content elements.

List of removed ViewHelpers: - menu.categories - menu.directory - menu.keywords - menu.list - menu.section - menu.updated

Affected Installations

All installations that use the fluid_styled_content menu ViewHelpers.

Migration

Use TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\DataProcessing\MenuProcessor instead of ViewHelpers.

For CMS 8 the ViewHelpers will be available as soon as compatibility7 is installed, but it's highly recommended to migrate your configuration.

Example (Directory)

Before:

tt_content.menu_subpages.dataProcessing {
   10 = TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\DataProcessing\SplitProcessor
   10 {
      if.isTrue.field = pages
      fieldName = pages
      delimiter = ,
      removeEmptyEntries = 1
      filterIntegers = 1
      filterUnique = 1
      as = pageUids
   }
}
<ce:menu.directory pageUids="{pageUids}" as="pages" levelAs="level">
   <f:for each="{pages}" as="page">
      ...
   </f:for>
</ce.menu.directory>

After:

tt_content.menu_subpages.dataProcessing {
   10 = TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\DataProcessing\MenuProcessor
   10.special = directory
   10.special.value.field = pages
}
<f:for each="{menu}" as="page">
   ...
</f:for>
