Hi!

In CMS context content is provided by a lot of content contributors who create documents linking to other documents available on the Internet. Therefore it happens frequently that an Internet/Intranet link becomes unavailable or broken. In such cases it would be nice to be able to report (as ordinary Internet/Intranet user) to the content contributor (owner, person who last published content) that there is a broken link on a specific page with a certain URL. Exemplary this could be easily achieved by providing e-mail addresses - if present - of owner, publisher, etc. in DOM and transform documents correspondingly (e.g. with advanced e-mail links).

Regards,
Severin

  • There are rudiments for this functionality in VLibraryItem::URLLink, IIRC.
