#58 closed enhancement (fixed)

feature-request: additional settings for Linker-Plugin

Reported by: ns@… Owned by: gogo
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.96
Component: Plugin_Linker Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


Setting to define which type of link is allowed.

  • popup-window (i won't allow the user to open popups as it would break the design)
  • same window (not every page has frames)
  • email-link (ok, this one doesn't hurt - but it is not needed everywhere)

Currently the tree with the links comes from a 'backend' php-file. This is very nice if you use it to scan directories.
Wouldn't it make sense to have the avaliable links as config-variables?
(in my case this would be only about 10 links to the latest news on the site and 15 links to some content-sites)
It would require a lot of extra work if i have to do it using the backend-php-file.

...and my third suggestion:
couldn't be the tree right of the inputs?
in some cases i would mainly use the tree to select the file
but other users might enter an external link and won't need the tree at all!

I had a similiar need on something I'm working on. I did not want the user to select any target, I always wanted to force _blank.

In htmlarea.js (LastChangedRevision: 477), I added a config property:

this.defaultTargetValue = '';

Then, in the _createLink function I leveraged this property. I changed [original] line 3920:

f_target : '',


f_target : editor.config.defaultTargetValue,

Then in myConfig.js I set some config variables [for all my editors]

xinha_config.makeLinkShowsTarget = false;
xinha_config.defaultTargetValue = '_blank';

The first property makes sure that the user cannot choose a target and the second property is used when calling the popup to set the target value, so it is returned on the submit.

Hope this is useful.

Some of these requests have been implemented, e.g., getting the links from the config file instead of the backend (see #66), and turning off e-mail links (see #1299).
