Missing http:// and mailto: in link inside article

Tuesday 17 June 2014 12:55:51 pm - 1 reply


I'm pretty new to EZ and I'm trying to solve a problem on a website.

Thanks to Google Webmaster Tools we discover that inside many articles the external links are written wrong. We forget to add the "http://" before www.

I've 2 questions:

1) How can we avoid this problem in the future? I mean, if we miss to add http:// there is a way to force EZ to add it?

2) How can I fix all the old articles?

I've the same problem for the link to email, always inside the body articles. How can I add mailto for the past articles?

1) I think the best way to avoid future problems is to train the editors.  You could add in a workflow to check and update links on publish.

2) If there are only a few links that are wrong, you can use Setup > Link management to fix them manually.

If there are a lot of them, you may want to run an SQL command on the ezurl table (make a backup first!).
