    It’s great that you can select an icon to display for a link. It would be even better if you could have the admin interface have two categories for that:

    1. Choose icon type for http site
    2. Choose icon type for https site

    Using Font Awesome, I currently have <i class=’fa fa-lock’> for a secure site and <i class=’fa fa-unlock’> for a non-secure site. But if WP External Links could have this type of behavior built-in, that would be convenient. Obviously it would have to read the first 5-6 characters of the link string as it processes to ascertain the info, but I imagine that wouldn’t be all that difficult.

    This is too specific to built in the plugin.
    But you could set the icon for unsecure sites (unlock) and an exception for secure sites in your CSS stylesheet:

    a[href^="https"] .wpel-icon:before {
      content: "\f023" !important; /* lock icon for https */
    }
