Patch for adding the two hooks into Linker.php (522 bytes, patch)
2007-08-28 23:58 UTC, Christian Riesen

Description Christian Riesen 2007-08-28 22:47:06 UTC
Mainly in the file includes/Linker.php in the function getExternalLinkAttributes just before return $r; and one in getInternalLinkAttributes same location.

This would allow a few significant changes to the way links are placed online. Some prefer to not show titles, but it also could lead to more extensive implementations like different tracking methods (Google Analytics for one).

I'm sorry for the wait, Christian.  I'm adding the "need-review" keyword so developers know that your patch is awaiting review.  Thank you for your patch.

Patch for adding the two hooks into Linker.php

Patch won't apply on trunk due to no familiar surrounding code

Christian, if you'd like to revise your patch so that it works with the current version of the MediaWiki codebase, please come into our IRC channel and discuss with us.  Thanks!

I believe between the LinkBegin, LinkEnd, and LinkerMakeExternalLink hooks, there should be sufficient extension functionality.
