Features For Integrators in  TYPO3 v10

 TYPO3 v10 has introduced some of the new features as well as improvements to existing features.

For now,filet’s checkout one-by-one major features that will help TYPO3 Integrator as follows.

#1 Dashboard Widgets For Your Editors

Dashboard presets can be configured for new users or for users who deleted all their dashboards. This can be used to show a "Getting Started" dashboard by default.

# Example TSconfig:
options.dashboard.dashboardPresetsForNewUsers = default, dashboardPreset-myPreset

Multiple dashboard presets can be define need in a comma separated list.

#2 Getting Rich-Feature into Sites Management

Automatically Create A Site

When a new page is created on the root level, a standard site configuration is automatically generated with it. As a result, a basic TYPO3 site can be set up quickly.

Website Title within Sites Configuration

The site title can now be configured in SITE CONFIGURATION → Sites. This lets integrators specify different site titles per language. The eld sys_template.sitetitle (database and TCA) will be removed in TYPO3 v11.

Import Environment Variables into Sites Configuration

It is now possible to use environment variables in imports of site configuration YAML les:

imports:
    -
        resource: ’Env_%env("foo")%.yaml’

Generate Multiple Sitemaps

It is now possible to configure multiple sitemaps.

plugin.tx_seo {
    config {
    <sitemapType> {
        sitemaps {
        <unique key> {
                    provider = TYPO3\CMS\Seo\XmlSitemap\RecordsXmlSitemapDataProvider
                        config {
                        ...
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }

Configure Sitemap.xsl

The default path to the le Sitemap.xsl of the system extension EXT:seo can be customized now:

# Globally for all sitemaps:
plugin.tx_seo.config.xslFile = EXT:myext/Resources/Public/CSS/mySite.xsl
# For all sitemaps of a specific type:
plugin.tx_seo.config.<sitemapType>.sitemaps.xslFile =
EXT:myext/Resources/Public/CSS/mySite.xsl
# For a specific sitemap:
plugin.tx_seo.config.<sitemapType>.sitemaps.<sitemap>.config.xslFile =
EXT:myext/Resources/Public/CSS/mySite.xsl
# The default path reads:
plugin.tx_seo.config.<sitemapType>.sitemaps.<sitemap>.config.xslFile =
EXT:seo/Resources/Public/CSS/Sitemap.xsl

Automatic Import Sites into Distribution Packages

Distributions can now provide site configuration file(s).

  • Create a directory/file in the distribution package as follows:
    Initialisation/Site/<siteIdentifier>/config.yaml
  • Similar to assets, which are moved to fileadmin/, site configurations are moved to the config/ folder.
  • If the target directory already exists, no change is made to the existing configuration.

#3 Better Fluid-based HTML Emails

TYPO3 now supports sending template-based HTML and plain-text emails. Emails are built by using the Fluid templating engine. Email templates can be customized by overwriting the paths to the template files:

$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’MAIL’][’templateRootPaths’][700] =
’EXT:my_site_extension/Resources/Private/Templates/Email’;
$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’MAIL’][’layoutRootPaths’][700] =
’EXT:my_site_extension/Resources/Private/Layouts’;

Fluid-based templated emails are used for the following components for example:

  • Install Tool test email (see example on the next slide).
  • Workspace notification email on stage change.
  • Notification email on backend user login.

Test email sent from the Install Tool:

#4 New Features Into Forms

Form Setup

Three files were used previously: BaseSetup.yaml, FormEditorSetup.yaml, and FormEngineSetup.yaml. This has been streamlined and consolidated into one now: FormSetup.yaml

YAML Files

YAML files now use the TYPO3 core YAMLfile loader. This enabled features such as: Import of other YAML files via imports directive. Replacement of %placeholders%.

Multiple Recipients

Mails sent by the EmailFinisher can now have multiple recipients.

The following new options have been introduced:

  • recipients (To)
  • replyToRecipients (Reply-To)
  • carbonCopyRecipients (CC)
  • blindCarbonCopyRecipients (BCC)

Display YAML Configuration

If the system extension EXT:form is installed, the parsed YAML configuration can be displayed under SYSTEM → Configuration. This also requires administrators to activate EXT:lowlevel of course.

Improved Multi-step Wizard

A new JavaScript module MultiStepWizard has been introduced, that adds the following features:

  • Navigation to previous steps.
  • Steps support descriptive labels such as "Start" or "Finish", rather than the numerical indicator "Step x of y".
  • Optimized configuration structure.

Useful client-side JavaScript code samples.

// Show/ hide the wizard
MultiStepWizard.show();
MultiStepWizard.dismiss();

// Add a slide to the wizard
MultiStepWizard.addSlide(
    identifier,
    stepTitle,
    content,
    severity,
    progressBarTitle,
    function() {
    ...
    }
);

// Lock/ unlock navigation buttons
MultiStepWizard.lockNextStep();
MultiStepWizard.unlockNextStep();
MultiStepWizard.lockPrevStep();
MultiStepWizard.unlockPrevStep();

Form Sorting Feature

Forms can now be sorted in either ascending or descending order. Two new settings were introduced: sortByKeys and sortAscending. Forms are initially sorted by their name and their file UID (ascending). To change the sorting, the following configuration needs to be added in the YAML configuration file:

TYPO3:
    CMS:
        Form:
            persistenceManager:
                sortByKeys: [’name’, ’fileUid’]
                sortAscending: true

Form’s Link Validator

The Link Validator now supports additional configuration for external links. Values for httpAgentUrl and httpAgentEmail should be provided. Settings headers, method and range are advanced settings.

mod.linkvalidator {
    linktypesConfig {
        external {
            httpAgentName = ...
            httpAgentUrl = ...
            httpAgentEmail = ...
            headers {
            }
            method = HEAD
            range = 0-4048
        }
    }
}

Button Icon at Record

The button icon of the record browser are now con gurable:

TYPO3:
    CMS:
        Form:
            prototypes:
                standard:
                    formElementsDefinition:
                        MyCustomElement:
                            formEditor:
                                editors:
                                    # ...
                                    300:
                                        identifier: contentElement
                                        # ...
                                        browsableType: tt_content
                                        iconIdentifier: mimetypes-x-content-text
                                        propertyPath: properties.contentElementUid
                                        # ...

Fieldset Labels

  • The section element Fieldset is now accessible in templates.
  • By default this affects the SummaryPage form element as well as the EmailToReceiver and EmailToSender nishers.
  • Typical use-case: A form with a shipping and a billing address. Both sections could have been added with the same name, e.g. street. It is now possible to distinguish between both elds by using fieldset labels.

File Uploads

  • Predefined allowedMimeTypes of the following form elements have been marked deprecated:
    • FileUpload
    • ImageUpload
  • All valid MIME types must be explicitly listed in the form de nition now (prede ned MIME types will be removed in TYPO3 v11)
  • Integrators can already activate the new behaviour in  TYPO3 v10 by using a feature toggle.

#5 Resolve Conflicts of Redirects Module

A new Symfony command has been introduced to detect redirects that conflict with page URLs. Execute the command in the CLI: (optional parameter --site limits the check to a speci c site)

The command is also available as a scheduler task:

#6 Know Application Context in CLI

The current Application Context is now shown next to the TYPO3 version number in CLI requests:

#7 Implement Lazy Loading for Images

The HTML attribute loading can now be set for <img>-tags. Browsers which support this feature won't load these images until they are in the viewport. The behavior can be modifed by the following TypoScript constant:

# Enable/Disable lazy-load implementation
styles.content.image.lazyLoading = lazy

Valid values are: lazy (default), eager, and auto.

The Fluid Image-ViewHelper also supports lazy loading now:

<f:image src="{fileObject}" treatIdAsReference="true" loading="lazy" />

#8 Web > Info Module

SEO and Social Media details have been added to the Info module: WEB → Info → Pagetree Overview.

#9 Adaption into Files Upload

Default Action at File Uploads

It is now possible to configure the default action when uploading files in the file list module using drag'n drop.

User TSConfig:

# Set default to replace:
options.file_list.uploader.defaultAction = replace

# Set default to rename:
options.file_list.uploader.defaultAction = rename

# Set default to cancel:
options.file_list.uploader.defaultAction = cancel

Enable/Disable Buttons at Media Element Buttons

Buttons "Add media by URL" and "Select & upload files" can now be enabled/disabled independently from each other.

The example below hides both buttons:

$GLOBALS[’TCA’][’pages’][’columns’][’media’][’config’][’appearance’] = [
    ’fileUploadAllowed’ => false,
    ’fileByUrlAllowed’ => false,
];

#10 USER_INT at Admin Panel

The Admin Panel features a new panel USER_INT under the "Info" module.

#11 Default values for lockIP/lockIPv6

The default values for lockIP settings have been changed. The following four system variables are now disabled by default:

[FE][’lockIP’]
[FE][’lockIPv6’]
[BE][’lockIP’]
[BE][’lockIPv6’]

The old default values ("4" for the backend and "2" for the frontend) caused problems for example for  Clients with IPv4 and IPv6 address support.

#12 Re-Formed Frontend Login EXT:felogin

 TYPO3 v10 now includes an Extbase-version of the frontend login functionality. The new Extbase plugin is available out-of-the-box for new installations. Now modification of Template is more-easy with Fluid will be more useful for TYPO3 integrators.

#13 Crowdin - Future of Localization

Crowdin aims to replace the existing Pootle solution as a localization/translation management platform. A feature toggle has been added in  TYPO3 v10.2 that uses crowdin.com as the source for translations if enabled. One of the great initiative by Georg, Checkout Localization with Crowdin Initiative

#14 Backend User Module

  • A new detailed view of backend user records shows all relevant data.
  • Additional fields have been added to the function to compare users.
  • This function also takes subgroups into account now.
  • The user interface of the module will be adjusted and optimized further.
  • These changes make it easier for integrators/administrators to check and compare user permissions without switching to the user.

#15 Application Context at Environment Overview

The current application context is now shown in the Environment module:

ADMIN TOOLS → Environment → Environment Overview.

#16 Checkout Reference Index from TYPO3-CLI

Progress bars are shown for each database table during Reference Index update.

#17 HTML5 attribute nomodule

The HTML5 attribute nomodule is now supported when including JavaScriptfiles in TypoScript.

page.includeJSFooter.file = path/to/classic-file.js
page.includeJSFooter.file.nomodule = 1

This attribute prevents a script from being executed in browsers that support module scripts.

#18 Workspaces TypoScript Condition

A new expression language variable has been added: workspace. This variable can be used to match a given expression against common workspace parameters. Currently, the following parameters are supported: workspaceId, isLive, and isOffline.

For example:

[workspace.workspaceId === 3]
# Current workspace ID is 3
[end]

#19 Logs: Backend User Switch

A log message is written if an admin user switches to another backend user:

#20 Removed Extensions from  TYPO3 v10

  • The system extensions EXT:taskcenter and EXT:sys_action have been removed from the core. They are now available as separate extensions from the TER and at GitHub.
  • EXT:rsaauth EXT:fe_edit

#21 Page Not Found Handling

The following global TYPO3 settings have been removed:

$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’FE’][’pageNotFound_handling’]
$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’FE’][’pageNotFound_handling_statheader’]
$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’FE’][’pageNotFound_handling_accessdeniedheader’]
$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’FE’][’pageUnavailable_handling’]
$GLOBALS[’TYPO3_CONF_VARS’][’FE’][’pageUnavailable_handling_statheader’]

The Site Handling introduced in TYPO3 v9 replaces these settings.
