meta entry for external links

Reimar Bauer
created an issue

We should have a list on each item of defined external links similiar to itemlinks

That are all other links which are not itemlinks.

This feature enables then the possibility for a function for approving those links (whitelisting for external links).

    A simple change that just puts external link targets into metadata would be useful and appreciated.

    As there is no reasonable plan for how whitelisting/approving links could reasonably work in practice without big performance and/or usability impact and this also is not a basic feature and thus not in moin-2.0 release scope, I would rather object any changes that go beyond that abovementioned simple change.

    To make that external link metadata useful, we can later work on some link checker (that just checks whether a http request gives 200 OK for the link target). That's an obviously useful functionality and not hard to implement.
