When a editor wants to preview a draft version in the liveworkspace the following error is shown:
"The requested page didn't have a proper connection to the tree-root!
(Broken rootline)"

This error does not occur if the user has administration rights.

TYPO3 Version 4.1.3

The same or a similar issue was already reported and should have been resolved in version 4.1.2.

I can confirm this problem.

#2 Updated by Dmitry Dulepov over 11 years ago

It appears that issue happens only and only for non-admin user

#4 Updated by Hercules Karvasonis about 11 years ago

I have the same problem with 4.2.

Non-Admin users cannot preview pages versions in the Live Workspace.

Did anybody find a fix about that?

#5 Updated by Mansoor Ahmad almost 11 years ago

The same problem also have the Typo3 4.1.2!

#6 Updated by Yannick Pavard over 10 years ago

Same problem with 4.2.3.

Page id = 1606, but preview id is 1607.

#7 Updated by Andreas Heling almost 10 years ago

I made a patch for this issue. It is for version 4.2.9.
The problem was that $this->getRecord('pages',$id,'pid,t3ver_oid') in t3lib_userAuthGroup::isInWebMount() function returns null, becaus the $TCA is not set at this time.

Along the same line: This is both for admins and non-admins btw.

1) Make a new version of a page (or a page and it's content - doesn't matter) - in live workspace.

2) switch to version preview (by right clicking on the page and in the click-menu choose "versioning" - NOT by using the Versioning-module!))

3) now you have Version overview and se the 2 versions of the page nicely aligned.

4) Click the preview icon of the unswaped page = you get the broken rootline error as mentioned in teh bugreport.

Btw, it's completely confusing, that there's a module "Versioning" and a clickmenu item called "Versioning" - but the y lead to completely different interfaces and functions of TYPO3.

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version deleted (0)

Issues have been fixed with the changes made in 4.5 - I assume this is outdated, feel free to reopen if that assumption was wrong
