The extension maintains a set of web links.

Basically, the link consists of a url and title . Additionally, it may contain a favicon (the small icon displayed in the browser tab) and/or a logo, as well as a textual description. Clicking the link's Title, url or logo opens the target in a separate browser tab.

Links can be structured by link categories, tagged with Joomla tags and paginated. As component, the extension displays full page list of links including favicon, title and URL in the header and logo with description in the description part. As module, the display can be limited just to the header part. In both cases, the list can be restricted to just one link category or the extension enables a category selection.

How to administrate:

  1. Purchase and Install pj Links package
  2. Have a look at the Sample
  3. Manage pj Links Categories
  4. Create pj Links Menu or Create / set up pj Links Module
  5. Set Menu / Module properties
  6. Select links
Edit Link

A pjLink consists of several parts:

  • The Link's url;
  • The Link's title under which it is displayed and ordered;
  • The Link's icon ("Favicon"), shown in the browser tab;
  • The Link's logo, if the page contains any;
  • The Link's description.

With New Link, you can start just inserting the url and clicking the Check URL button. It tries to open the url and extract its title, icon and logo if corresponding fields are empty yet. If the connection fails, the error message is displayed and the Link's State is set to Trashed.

In most cases, the Check URL function delivers usable results immediately seen in the Preview. Well, supposed your host doesn't block retrieving urls and answers with HTTP Error 403... If this is the case or if you are not satisfied with retrieved results, you can edit or delete them and eventually try to get the information by other means.

The Logo Width resizes the logo display proportionally.

To shorten the Link's description displayed in the module view, use the Read more... tag (html: <hr id="system-readmore" />). In the module view, only the description until the tag displays. In the component (menu) view, the whole text displays and the tag is stripped.

After the Link is once saved, changes made are immediately seen in the Preview.
