Sometimes I wonder what could be my most significant achievement in TYPO3. I did a lot of stuff but I were to pick up only one thing, what would I choose to be proud of?
It is not any extension or article or this whole blog or mailing lists posts or T3DD presentations. It is a feature of TYPO3 4.2 named "linking across domains".
Some people might remember that before TYPO3 4.2 it was not possible to link from one TYPO3 page to another using page tree and get a proper link. The result was always shown as index.php?id=12345. Editors had to put these links as external URLs. It meant that renaming of the page ended up in dead links. This has to be solved and it was solved!
In TYPO3 4.2 it became possible to link normally across domain bounds. I am very proud of this fix. It took a lot of time for development, debugging, testing and tuning but it works and it is rock stable.
Good memories! :) When I thought about it, I wondered what other people see as my greatest achievement in TYPO3? Please, post your comments!
