For editing links (cross references) in Weblication® CMS, a comfortable link editing is available to you.
The project shown as examples use a strucural element "Link" within the page editing, through which the individual parameters of a link can be edited.
In addition, you can insert and edit cross references within text areas released for maintenance (WYSIWYG field). As a default setting, always the same maintenance mask is used for link editing.
Depending on the settings in the maintenance mask, the attributes released for maintenance are made available to you. In the following the attributes by default are described.
In the register 'General' the attributes subject to maintenance are shown that have been defined as released for maintenance to this register (sheetRegister="common") through the corresponding Maintenance mask
. Moreover, additional registers can be displayed through the Maintenance mask
(Extended, Style, Language, Incidents).
In this field you select the file you want to link through the right selection arrow
. For external links enter the corresponding address in the input box (e.g. http://www.weblication.de).
Once an internal path (starting with /) has been entered in the field, a magnifier symbol
will appear next to the selection area for calling the linked file for preview.
Through the selection box you can optionally select the anchors being available for the selected project page. Upon selection, the URL in the link field will be automatically complemented by this anchor name and thus represents a jump label (e.g. /base/unternehmen/index.php#sitemap
This selection box will only appear if an internal project page containing an anchor has been selected through the link field. This can be links with a filled in name
attribute (see below) or container a corresponding id
indication (e.g. Weblication® CMS Headers (implementation of the header Weblics®)).
You can select through the selecton box, in which window and by what means the linked file should opened. By default, the following options are available for selection:
- Open link in the same window
The linked file is called in the same window or browser tab as the currently called page.
- Open link in new window
Depending on browser settings, the linked file is opened in a new browser window or browser tab, respectively.
- Open link in pop-up (width x height)
The linked file is opened in a pop-up window. For this selection, on the right of the selection box two additional input boxes are displayed. Enter width and height of the pop-up window in these fields (e.g. 720x560 for a width of 720 pixels and a height of 560 pixels).
- Open link in a fancybox
The linked file is opened in a fancybox. For this selection, the selection box representation is automatically put to fancybox.
This selection is offered depending on the BASE project base it is based on. With older or individual projects you have to do the upgrading on your own.
- Open image in a fancybox
The linked file (image) is opened in a fancybox. For this selection, the selection box representation is automatically put to fancybox.
This selection is offered depending on the BASE project base it is based
on. With older or individual projects you have to do the upgrading on
- E-mail with SPAM protection
The E-mail address entered in the link field is equipped with spam protection for page publication. This makes it difficult for robots to find this E-mail address.

Enter the link text in this field that should be shown for the linked file on your website. The text should describe the link (e.g. How to find us).

In many browsers, the title gets visible by mouseover and is particularly important for barrier-free websites.

" you can optionally call the title of the linked file which is then entered in the field. This function is exclusively available for linked HTML files the title of which can be read out.

This field will only appear if the attribute has been defined as editable through the link maintenance mask.
Through the selection box you can select, which type of representation should be allocated to the link. In this way, a class is attributed to the link, through which, for example, a representation symbol can be put in front of the link.
