Wonders of Typo3

A lot of people complain about Typo3. They say it is too heavy for a CMS. They may be right, it is complex and it takes some time to get used to it. But it pays!

Today a customer complained, that one of his pages in Typo3 was missing completely. He was right, it was not there any more. What happened? One of his employees accidentally deleted the wrong page … Which is not really a problem of Typo3. If you delete it, it is gone. It does not matter which system you are using … Well, problem for Typo3.

Unfortunately, content versioning was disabled, which made it a little bit more work:

  • open the database
  • find the page (write down the pid)
  • change deleted from 1 to 0
  • repeat those steps for all content entries with that pid
  • return to the administrator of Typo3
  • move the page to its correct location
  • reposition the content inside the page

… done in 5 minutes … with content versioning enabled it would have been a simple click …


Flattr this!
