00050: UrlLinkFmt is hard-coded in the LinkIMap function
Description: It is no longer possible to override the default formatting of url links.
This is causing a problem in converting the publish script to pmwiki 2:
- it can't redefine the link layout
- it can't collect all link references and list them at the end of the generated page -- it's non-trivial to intercept calls from MakeLink to LinkImap to build a list of references and then display them with a suitable format at the end
PmWiki should at least have a UrlLinkFmt variable.
Agreed -- When writing the function I just hard-coded the text in place with the intent of replacing it with a variable after I knew better how all of the link functions fit together and what the variable should be called. It will reappear in an upcoming development version soon. --Pm
Done. PmWiki 2 now has the
$UrlLinkFmt variable which provides the default text for any url-link. In addition, I've added
$IMapLinkFmt, which allows custom text to be defined for any InterMap type or URL scheme. For example, one can change the rendering of ftp-links via:
$IMapLinkFmt['ftp:'] = "<a class='ftplink' href='\$LinkUrl'>\$LinkText</a> (ftp)";
or one could change Cookbook-links via:
$IMapLinkFmt['Cookbook:'] = "<a class='cookbooklink' href='\$LinkUrl'>\$LinkText <img src='cookbook.gif' /></a>";
Should be released in 2.0.devel6.
