Support » Everything else WordPress » Make links to local pages look different

  • Resolved triplemaya


    I want a plugin to make links to local pages look different to outbound links. Can’t find it as I don’t know what to search for! Searches just give me a blizzard of other topics.

    Standard WordPress 2022

    Even better would be if there is a facility in the theme of course.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Depending on the styling that you want, you may be able to do with a line or two of pure CSS, without the need for any plugin or JS/PHP coding.

    If you can describe the styling you want for outbound links AND provide a working URL for your website (the domain you provided is not even registered), I’d give it a shot for you.

    Hi. That is very kind of you. But I really just want plugin! I have done plenty of css work but it seems it always means problems with maintenance.

    The website is Can’t see any way to edit my first post.

    I can’t think of what sort of “maintenance” a single CSS selector and its properties would ever need, but I guess each to their own 😀

    I found the following two plugins:

    I still don’t know what sort of “look” you want, but kindly note that both plugins, by default, will simply add an icon (arrow) to the end of external links.

    Can you change these default icons or add additional styling properties?



    According to both plugins…. by adding custom CSS 😀

    Good luck!

    Thank you. This is very helpful. And yes, the arrow is a bit basic!

    I have the plugin installed ‘WP External Links‘ But it simply does not work. When working it does much nicer icons. I have put up a request for support to the makers. I will report back if I can get it working.

    It was my old installation of Firefox that was not showing the arrows. Works fine everywhere else!
