Allow to link to all pages even if it is not in the own db mounts
I have given the editors a mount to the whole website and one for every permission part. That has the consequence that the pages are sometimes twice there in the pagetree and on saving the pagetree gets opened two times. This is very annoying. I would prefer to just give the editors db mounts to the pages to which they have edit rights, but they should always have the possibility to link to another page were they have no DB mount (pages are normally not visible in the pagetree when they have no db mount and also not in the link wizard, but pages should be always visible in the link wizard even if they are not visible in the editors page tree).

This is already possible, use
options.pageTree.altElementBrowserMountPoints = PID
for setting up a mount (or several) in the linkbrowser. There is also
options.folderTree.altElementBrowserMountPoints = folder1, folder2
for (read-only) folders.
See documentation at http://docs.typo3.org/TYPO3/TSconfigReference/UserTsconfig/Options/Index.html

Thanks, works great! The documentation says for pageTree.altElementBrowserMountPoints: These alternative webmounts replace configured DB mount points.
How about to not replace the configured DB mount points but to have these as additional mountpoints? I think this could be better because the editors don’t have to search for their pages in a big page tree.

Good idea, Bernhard.
I'm currently working on an additional option, that allows appending at least database mount point.
I'll push a patch to Gerrit soon.
Maybe the subject of the issue can be changed to "Make alternative element browser mount points appendable".
