Support » Plugin: External Links » Icon not visible with shortcode for reusable text blocks

  • Resolved Randy


    Hi there, I installed this plug-in mostly for the external link icon functionality. After the installation and checking the box it worked fine. I’ve been working on my site for a bit (it’s not live yet) and noticed that the icon disappeared. I did some testing and I suspect that it has something to do with the reusable text blocks plug-in ( After I installed this plug-in, created a text block and inserted the shortcode into a post with an external link the icon disappeared. I removed the shortcode and the icon reappeared. I tried some shortcodes associated with other plug-ins and as far as i can tell these don’t conflict.

    I’m not sure if this is on your plug-in or on the reusable text one or on the combination of the two. However since it seems to impact only the external links plug-in so I thought I would start here.

    Before I got on the reusable text blocks path I unchecked and checked the Icon checkbox. It didn’t seem to make a difference.

    Is there anything that can be done to fix this?

    Sorry for the lack of reply….

    Are you still having problems with this? Even with new version of the plugin?

    My first suggestion is to set External Links to Apply Globally and see what happens. This causes different logic to run as to how the External Links treatment is applied.
