This extension has not been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues.

Tagged with links

Description

With this plugin you can easily insert a link to pages on same server, but outside DokuWiki.

Format

[[@/somewhere/somepage.html|And possibly some title]]

The link naming follows normal HTML hyperlink naming. If it starts with a slash, then the link is absolute. Without a slash the link is relative.

If your dokuwiki is in http://localhost:88/dokuwiki/doku.php Then links

[[@page|name]] links to http://localhost:88/dokuwiki/doku.php/page
[[@/page|name]] links to http://localhost:88/page
[[@?do=recent|name]] links to http://localhost:88/dokuwiki/doku.php/?do=recent

Installation

Install with Plugin Manager from here (new version without svchk call)

Or manually

Create a new folder lib/plugins/externallink/ and place the following file in it: syntax.php.

lib/plugins/externallink/syntax.php:

Discussion

Is this plugin superseded by the baselink plugin?

Well in someway yes. The format is different, and baselink gives you more options. Choice is yours ;-)Otto Vainio 2006-04-05 18:51

I think, the use of _xmlEntities() is not necessary and in fact leads to problems.

Example:

[[@/someurl|This & that]]

This will always render as: This &amp; that

Why? Well - when entering such text, special characters, like ampersand or “<” and “>” are already stored as “&amp;”, “&lt;” and so on. In fact all special characters are stored in a form, which never needs any conversion. A conversion may only be necessary, when editing the text files manually without DokuWiki - but who does this?

BTW: DokuWiki itself does it correct: A link like

[[somepage|This & that]]

will render correct as: This & that

Ok. Thanks for reporting that. I have now fixed the source above and the zip package for pluginmanager. — Otto Vainio 2006-04-11 09:40
Note that the JavaScript function “svchk()” no longer exists (and is now unnecessary) in DokuWiki, and does cause JavaScript errors, so references should be removed.

Fixed. — Otto Vainio 2007-02-26 21:56

I configured my Wiki to open external links in new pages by setting the external links target to _blank using the configuration manager. So I noticed that the plugin does not use the right setting. I had to change line 93 from

$conf["target"]["wiki"];

to

$conf["target"]["extern"];

And it's working like a charm now.

Plugin doesn't work on Release 2012-10-13 “Adora Belle”

Url leads to Dokuwiki basedir, but not web server root dir
