handling of Shortcuts has been changed with TYPO3 4.6.
Instead of showing the content of the directed page under the current
URL you are really redirected to that page (and generated links show
directly to the directed page)
this was done to get better results with seachengines. it avoids
with this change the reccomandation about domain-root shortcutting to
home is void.
you have to do it the other way around, with the discomfort of very
special Typoscript configuration in the tree root which normaly will be
inherited into the tree.
- include different typoscript for following levels
- have conditions with root-page-uid
- build a FE-layout depending on layout-value of page (FE-layout or
having this in mind from the beginning it is not much discomfort.
changing a running page after an update to 4.6 can be very inconvenience.
solutions outside of TYPO3:
- you may define some 'magic' in .htaccess with some rewrites wich
exchange http://my.domain.tld with http://my.domain.tld/home [¹]
- ignore it, as anyway no visitor cares about the exact wording in URLs
(Bookmarking or link-forwarding is done mostly with copy&paste)
[¹] = I don't know wether this is possible without catching yourself in
endless redirecting loops
