Automatically adds a recognizable icon after external links in entity content areas (entry, posts, dashboard widgets, etc.) and provides custom properties to style them further.

This plugin is compatible with all official themes and should integrate seamlessly with Marketplace themes. It pairs well with Mention Type Indicators.


You can add and customize the following CSS custom properties to your campaign to give external links a more distinct appearance:

:body {
	--external-link-color: var(--link-text);
	--external-link-hover-color: var(--link-hover);
	--external-link-font: inherit;
	--external-link-size: inherit;
	--external-link-weight: inherit;
	--external-link-decoration: inherit;

The default values above correspond to the official Default theme.
