t3lib_pageSelect->getRecordOverlay() relies on $TSFE->TCAcachedExtras set by $TSFE->getCompressedTCarray().

$TSFE->getCompressedTCarray() does only set $TSFE->TCAcachedExtras if the TCA hasn't been loaded yet. But an active BE session loads the TCA, so plugins that use the l10n features of t3lib_pageSelect->getRecordOverlay() break.

I would like to add that at least in my case, the problem with $TSFE->TCAcachedExtras not set apparently only occurs when in FE editing mode (edit icons shown).
The getRecordOverlay() method then only retrieves the overlay, but all fields set as "exclude" / "MergeIfNotBlank" are empty.
Disabling Edit panel resolves the problem in FE, but it's really needed to give editors in other languages the ability to work with FE editing correctly.

We have the same problem, even in 4.4.x. Any updates?

Does this problem exists in newer TYPO3 CMS Versions like 4.5 or 6.0?


Updated by Dimitri Koenig over 8 years ago

Yes it does. Just checked it out with 4.5

TCA cached extras is not used in 6.2 anymore, as the TCA caching is done differently now. Problem solved.
