Allow protocol file:// in FieldType URL and CKEditor links

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am currently building a intranet which will be hosted on the local network of a company. This intranet has many links to files on their fileserver with the protocol file://.

So for example the links look like this file://domain.tld/filename.ext

  • When I try to insert such a link into a URL field, I get the error, that only the protocol http:// is allowed.
  • When I try to insert such a link into a CKEeditor link, it gets stripped out.

Is it possible to insert such links into the FieldType URL and CKEditor.

I know that I could use a FieldType Text or insert a RewriteRule in the .htaccess file, but I am looking for a more elegant solution. 😉

Regards, Andreas

I have not truly vetted the plugin, but there is this official plugin via CKEditor. It let me select from various protocols and has an "other" selection. I was able to successfully use the file:// protocol inside the href without it getting stripped.

Thank you @louisstephens for the hint. I tried it out, but the link still gets stripped out, even with disabled ACF. Do you have configured extra allowed content?

Maybe a RewriteRule in the .htaccess file would be the easiest solution. 🤔

Ah, I did not have extra allowed content enabled, but it was a bit confusing for me as I had to add it to the toolbar and the icon appeared to be exactly like the current "url" icon.

My solution for textareas with CKEditor is now a simple Textformatter module. 😉

<?php
class TextformatterReplaceLinks extends Textformatter implements Module {

    public static function getModuleInfo() {
        return array(
            "title" => "Replace Links",
            "version" => "1.0.0",
            "summary" => "Find and replace links of domain.",
            "author" => "AndZyk",
            "singular" => true,
            "requires" => "ProcessWire>=2.6",
            "icon" => "link"
        );
    }

    /**
     * Find and replace the input string
     *
     * @param string $str The block of text to parse
     *
     * The incoming string is replaced with the formatted version of itself.
     *
     */

    public function format(&$str) {

        $str = preg_replace("/(http|https):\/\/example.com/", "file://example.com", $str);

    }
}

      Hi all and thanks for the great work on PW!

      One thing I find I have to do on any new site is add the Justify plugin to textarea fields as it is such a widely required feature for text headings in content.

      ANy chance this could be added to the core an automatically be installed on new textarea fields using CKEditor?

      Thank you!

      Does anyone knows if there is a way of selecting a iframe inside a textfield(using ckEditor)? 
      I mean I have a Iframe with this code:
      <iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" scrolling="no" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/PMaFJjZDrYM" width="100%"></iframe></p>
       
      but it's not getting responsive in iPhones.. So anyone know how can I select it via code for making it responsive?
       
      Thank you,

      On one particular site, CKEditor behaves rather weird:
      When I copy and paste "normally", i.e. CTRL + V, there is an alert popping up "do you really want to leave this page?". If you cancel, the text is pasted into the field. If not, you get redirected to the frontend of the page you just edited, and the changes are lost.
      The "paste from Word" button doesn't work. CTRL + SHIFT + V works, but all formatting is lost (apart from paragraphs).
      I'm using inline editor mode, ACF + Purifier are activated. I know that if I disable those two, CTRL + V works, but I won't do that, since CKE then saves all the garbage code from MS-Office.
      Has anyone ever come across this issue? I tried with Chrome + FF. No JS errors.

      Hi folks.
      I'm building a Formbuilder form to create new advert pages in a marketplace. Formbuilder is ideal for this. I need to add a description field that allows text to be added with line breaks etc. so showing a CKEditor field would be ideal (i.e. exactly like the field I'm typing into right now)!.
      Does anyone know if it's possible to add a CKEditor field to the front end presentation fo a Formbuilder field, maybe via a module or such?
      Many thanks!

      Hello.
      I never though about it before but when I insert image into CKeditor field I don't get ALT tag filled from image that has it. Do I have to do it manualy for inserted image or Im doing something wrong?
