Linkr – the best extension

October 5th, 2011 by Edward

I’d like to take a moment to express just how darn wonderful this extension is for joomla, enabling article linking as it does. Its worked seamlessly in IE (7,8) and every other browser.

A recently reported issue with IE9 and Linkr is sorted (seemingly), so that’s good.., however, I found that turning on mootools update meant hat fckeditor stopped working…. so for me, its not that great after all!!!

However, the new spanner in the works is that it appears that Linkr may not be developed such that it works in a version of Joomla above 1.5 – ie its not going to be compatable for 1.6, 1.7 etc.

So it looks like its goodbye to an old friend, as Joomla 1.5 (and hence Linkr) shuffle off into the distance.

Advice to clients – if you are running Joomla 1.5 and IE9 you’ll need to update your linkr. For Joomla 1.6 and on its not such a problem because the joomla developers have built article linking into the backend.
