Linkr – a beautiful extension for Joomla 1.5

September 9th, 2008 by rvdavid Leave a reply »

If you are a Joomla user or developer, then you would have come accross the requirement of linking to articles and/or menu items from the WYSIWYG editor.

The current way is tedious. You’d either have to try and guess the URL and have some sort of workaround so that you can remember how to format links. This requirement has always stumped us in the past, but after some R&D prior to coding up my own solution, I found out about the Linkr extension for Joomla 1.5!

Beautiful! an extension which brings the ability to link to internal pages in a click for click fashion _without_ having to read those complicated query strings in Joomla 1.5. Yes there is JCE, but the editor is a little too bloated for my liking. I was happy with the standard WYSIWYG editor I just needed to link to other pages in Joomla.

If you like JCE, then good for you, but if you’re like me, and are actually looking for a quick fix for this requirement without throwing in another Editor, then the linkr extension is the extension for you!

Check it out!

    If you don’t like popups you can try the plugin TitleLink which also helps linking to articles without knowing about html code. You only need to know the article title/alias!
