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.


Updated by Dmitry Dulepov almost 14 years ago

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

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?


Updated by Mansoor Ahmad about 13 years ago

The same problem also have the Typo3 4.1.2!


Updated by Yannick Pavard over 12 years ago

Same problem with 4.2.3.

Page id = 1606, but preview id is 1607.

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Issues have been fixed with the changes made in 4.5 - I assume this is outdated, feel free to reopen if that assumption was wrong
