TWiki External Links

URLs starting with file, ftp, gopher, http, https, irc, mailto, news, nntp and telnet are linked automatically if preceded by whitespace or parenthesis. External links are indicated with a trailing External link icon, and open up in a new browser tab or window; the behavior of both can be set in configure or preferences variables. Links can be prevented with an ! exclamation point prefix.

Note: if a link is written directly as HTML (<a href="http://...">...</a>), it is not subject to the external link conversion.

Preferences Variables

Users can customize the behavior of the external links (typically in the WebPreferences page).
