An add-on for Plone 5

Project description


  • Adds an output filter that changes all the internal link in a page (the ones with resolveuid) to the absolute url of that plone object.

  • Adds the ILeadImage behavior to the Link content type so you can add an image to a link object.

  • If the link is internal to the site, the page template of the actual link (if you have the right permissions) shows the absolute url of the linked object.

  • If the link points to a deleted or an unpublished resource, you get redirected to the home page and a warning message is displayed.
