  • Category set to Frontend

It seems still present in 9.0.0-dev (latest master).
Moreover, I don't understand why in 9.0.0-dev the section menu CE shows the page itself (the page selected in the backend in the "selected pages" field - this does not happen for 7.6.18)

Same Problem with Typo3 8.7.24, PHP 7.2.16


Updated by Riccardo De Contardi about 2 years ago

It is still present on version (latest master); please note that the steps to reproduce it are:

1) Create a page, set its type = Backend user Section
2) Put a couple of CE in it, with a headline
3) Create another page (Standard)
4) Create in it a "Section Index" menu content element, select as starting point the page created at point 1)
5) preview the page

Expected result

- the menu should be renderered

Actual result

The menu CE is empty (it shows just its surrounding <div id="cXXX" class="frame frame-default frame-type-menu_section frame-layout-0"> and the headline, if present.
