django-cms link/-structure management plugin with filer file support

Project description

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.

Code Analysis


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

  • djangocms-attributes-field

  • requests


To get started using djangocms-link2:

  • install it with pip:

    $ pip install djangocms-link2
  • add the plugins to INSTALLED_APPS:

  • run migrate cmsplugin_filer_link2.

  • remove the default djangocms-link or cmsplugin_filer_link from your INSTALLED_APPS

  • add LINK_DOMAIN = '' to your settings to make sure files and relative paths can be checked through the management command.

Management Command

./ check_links allows you to check all Link instances. ./ check_links --timeout=20 allows you to set a timeout for quicker checks. Default timeout is 60 seconds.
