django-cms link/-structure management plugin with filer file support
A link/-structure management plugin that replaces the plugin shipped with django-cms with a robust version that employs file fields from django-filer. It can be used as a drop-in replacement for cmsplugin_filer_link. The package contains a management command to migrate all existing Link-instances from cmsplugin_filer_link to link2.
cmsplugin_filer_link is already a great plugin and link2 builds on it. The following advantages are available in this package:
- robust django-cms link plugin which doesn’t fail loudly
- persists the internal url as well
- can be copied safely between languages (even if the target page is not yet available in this language)
- internal and external links are monitored (through a management command)
- faulty links are visually highlighted for the content editor
- an admin page lists all faulty links
- easy migration from cmsplugin_filer_link (through a management command)
- django-filer >= 1.2
- Django >= 1.8
- django-cms >= 3.1
To get started using djangocms-link2:
install it with pip:
$ pip install djangocms-link2
add the plugins to INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'cmsplugin_filer_link2', ... )
run migrate cmsplugin_filer_link2.
remove the default djangocms-link or cmsplugin_filer_link from your INSTALLED_APPS
add LINK_DOMAIN = 'www.yourdomain.com' to your settings to make sure files and relative paths can be checked through the management command.
./manage.py check_links allows you to check all Link instances. ./manage.py check_links --timeout=20 allows you to set a timeout for quicker checks. Default timeout is 60 seconds.
