What does it do?

This TYPO3 CMS frontend extension restores the use of different HTTP statuscodes for redirects depending on the type of the selected shortcut for a page.

  • 307 for redirects to rather random pages (first subpage, random subpage, parent page)
  • 301 for redirects to a well-defined page (explicitly selected page)

Motivation & Usage

This extension is made due to the discussion in TYPO3 issue 73148

Please take a look into the ticket to understand why the TYPO3 core team did not want this functionality to be part of the core anymore.

The extension overwrites a method in the core! Keep this in mind for core updates and other installed extension which may try to override the same class.

As described above this is a patch extension only. If you want to let your editors manage shortcuts to your own needs, then you should take a look into the following great extensions:
