Let editors choose if a language overlay should be performed
Since TYPO3 Version 9.5 LTS an automatic overlay is done for records selected in the content element "Insert Records". The benefit is that if this content element is translated, there is no need to change the selected record from default to the current language anymore.5
However, the drawback is that it is not possible anymore to render a record in the selected language.
Install this extension just as any other extension. Either download it from TER or get it via composer with
composer require georgringer/insert-records-overlaymode
After the installation, include the TypoScript from the extension. Either select it in the sys_template record or copy
tt_content.shortcut.variables.shortcuts.overlayMode.field = overlay_mode
to your site package.
A new checkbox has been added to the content element "Insert Records". Editors can now choose if the language overlay should be done or not.
