Revision [7356]

This is an old revision of LinkTails made by DarTar on 2005-04-18 10:13:47.


Wikka currently gives admins the option to configure a specific tail for external links in the ConfigurationOptions configuration file.
For example: Google (see the small infinity symbol appended to the link).
I see two issues in the current implementation.

span vs. :after selector
The tail is currently rendered through a <span> that displays the tail as configured in the config file. It would make more sense IMO (especially as soon as we allow TestSkin multiple CSS stylesheets) to render it through an a.ext:after selector.

Currently, only external links have a dedicated class and tail.
If the link parser is modified, dedicated classes, titles and tails could be given to specific kinds of link. I think this could be applied both to link types and Wikka methods.

For instance (titles are displayed on mouse roll-over):

Link types

Internal link: HomePage
Internal link to missing page: MissingPage
External link:
Userpage link: HomePage(USER)
FTP link:
MAILTO link: DarTar(EMAIL)
CALLTO link: DarTar(CALL)

Wikka Methods
Edit method: LinkTails[edit]
Backlink method: HomePage[backlinks]
Clone method: LinkTails[clone]

Tails need not be textual, they can be configured as icons as well, for instance:

MAILTO link: DarTar [email icon]
Userpage: DarTar [userpage icon]
