In the Install Tool I've set [GFX][thumbnails] to "0", but the thumbnails are still generated in Backend.

Is there a solution?

[BUGFIX] Re-implement GFX[thumbnails] for Backend

The option to disable thumbnails globally for every
backend user in various places does not work anymore,
but is still quite useful. The patch re-introduces the option
to not show the thumbnail in various places.

I checked all usages of this config option in the code.
Unfortunately, I have to tell you that this option is only used in FE when rending filelinks (stdWrap), but not at all in BE.
So clearly the description of this option is totally wrong and the option itself is totally outdated.

Where do you want to hide the thumbs?

I have a (backend) page with over 200 textpic elements (translations included).
The page speed is very low, because the thumbnail rendering and the image loading took a while.

Have you an idea?

Hm, seems like this was changed with 6.0 or 6.1.
I'm still searching for the commit.

  • Target version set to next-patchlevel
For the brave person taking this one on:
  • Open typo3/sysext/core/Classes/Resource/Processing/LocalPreviewHelper.php on Line76
  • Move the call to $this->getTemporaryFilePath($task) away from here
Getting the temp file name will actually CREATE the file.
So the file will always be generated even if there is no reason to do so.
  • [GFX][thumbnails] = 0 is set.
  • The entire Graphic processing is disabled... you will still create empty files (because of the usage of tempnam() and filelist will go "hey, I have images to show"
