Adding something in front of a Link


I have again a strange requirement to solve :wink:

Each link in an article needs to have a symbol in front of the link text, if the link points to an external site.

I think, i have to intercept the content for parsing and updating, before it will be rendered. Is this right?


probably the best place to do that… that way if your requirements change, just pull the interceptor.

okay, this will be a great example to learn this after the ColdBox camp :wink: Actually i’m not really familiary with the interceptor in general.

Yes Martin,

an interceptor is your best approach.
