Mode

You can choose whether to use a dedicated button or a key/click combo to open URL field contents.

The module currently supports three modes:

  • Button: adds a URL check button to the left or to the right side of the field
  • Ctrl + Shift + Click: check URL by holding down ctrl+shift and clicking on the field
  • Ctrl + Shift + Enter: check URL by holding down ctrl+shift+enter while caret is in the field

Target options

By default the link is opened in a lightbox. From version 1.01 links can be opened in an iframe that slides in from the left and clicking on its overly closes it.

Note: if the target website doesn't allow embedding from another domain then the iframe mode will fail.

Force HTTP prefix

If checked, links will always have "http://" prefix, even if the field itself doesn't contain it.

This ensures opening external links instead of relative ones.

Restrict module

Here you can set templates and/or fields where the module will be enabled. If none selected, module will be active on all templates and all URL type fields.

Note: if used, module will be disabled on all non-listed fields/templates.
