Typo3 routing

You are creating a site with typo3? You have no intention to have multiple domains even in future? You have no intention of using extensions? Just use the core extension SimulateStaticDocuments and enable it in your typoscript template with:

config.simulateStaticDocuments = 1

It works fine.
But seriously you do not want to do that!


The standard configuration is just as simple as I describe it on my site.
Now do not be silly to expect it to take over the routes of your self made extension. Extensions like tt_news have documentation how to configure RealUrl properly.
If an extension has no preparation for the routes with RealUrl it is just a shit extension do not blame Typo3 for this.

Typo3 URI problem

What is the synopsis?
I used mc_googlesitemap (version 0.4.2; which seemed buggy). Google Webmaster Tools accepted the URI in the sitemap. I quick fixed the problem in the extension mc_googlesitemap (URI still persists in google site search).

You could ask for my fix but I would be rather you use another extension! Anyhow I understand if you have a problem. I am sure you know how to contact me if you are not a bot.

What was wrong?

http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/ does not cause an error.
http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/ does.

it’s even this which triggers it: http://www.DOMAIN.TLD/X://X

And this shows a blank page:


What is my typo 3 version?
It is 4.5.2 and my realurl setup is at pastebin.com

What is my temporary workaround?
For now I put this in my .htaccess and I know it does not cover all cases mentioned above:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(/http://.*|/https://.*)
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://%{HTTP_HOST}/page-not-found.html [R=301,L,E=nolog:1]
