Not possible to sort parts of the page tree differently anymore
Since a long time we are using pages for news or events, instead of the regular records like tx_news does. With the old page tree it was possible to sort parts of the page tree differently with the hook
This hook was very convenient to sort news pages by date in a news storage folder. We use it for a lot of our clients, including a big university news website.
This hook, but also other ones related to the page tree, have been removed without any deprecation warning, which is not according to the TYPO3 core team rules, so I'm wondering what happened. The only thing to solve this fast for our clients is to overwrite the new page tree repository completely
