Add Link Advanced Controls

The following Advanced Controls are available:

  1. Favicon - a favicon's URL.
  2. Feed Link - links that are marked as feeds will be opened using an external Feed Reader. Feed Reader URL is configurable in User Settings.
  3. Private - links that are marked as private will not be shared even if they are in a shared folder.
  4. Exclude from Validation - if you are adding a password protected or an Intranet link, then you should tick this on. Validator will then skip such links and will not mark them as dead.
  5. Target - a target where the page should be opened, you may use _blank, if you want this particular link to be opened in a new window. Usually you keep this field empty.
