Hide magnifying glass while on a sysfolder
|Priority:||Should have||Due date:|
|Target version:||TYPO3 4.3||Estimated time:||0.00 hour|
Having give 7 days of training (same course 7 times) to a bunch of Editors there was always someone trying to see his tt_news records while being on a sysfolder.
Since sysfolders never have templates and are not "real pages", it makes no sense to show the magnifying glass (Show webpage) in that context.
Trying to see a sysfolder in FE give the error: "The requested page does not exist!".
Also once inside a tt_news record for example, there's also a "Save document and view page". I undestand that if the same record was on a page instead of a sysfolder it would work. So is there a possibility to influence the behaviour at core level of "Save document and view page" instead of the Extension Developers ?
This is set for "needs feedback". And I mean it. ;)

As you said, it doesn't make any seens.... just go ahead and clean up those magnifying glass...
I dont know how to, but I want to encourage you to go ahead
another option is to jump on the nearest page viewable
or: define a "jump to" page in page properties of the sysfolder
I believe the last would proberly the most consistent way

To your first point (hiding the magnifying glass inside sysfolders): that's already done with the latest trunk, I don't know if it has been introduced for 4.3 or been there for a longer time. When clicking it on the root page (uid 0), you are "redirected" to the first available page, so that's no problem either.
For tt_news there's also a solution: Look in section "Page TSconfig" of the manual, there's an example. When you set the property
tx_ttnews.singlePid, the user is redirected to that page when clicking save & view. Unfortunately, this only works in live workspace, and it seems that's only a solution for tt_news. So there's a lot of room for improvements here...
