Plugin for Rewriting External Link URLs

Description

Rewrite external link location, to hide referers for private sites, to use social bookmark sites, and so on.

For example, Trac link:

[http://foo.bar.com outgoing site]

becomes in html:

<a class="ext-link" href="http://foo.bar.com">outgoing site</a>

But, ExtLinkRewriter converts it as:

<a class="ext-link" href="/myredirector.html?http://foo.bar.com" target="_blank">outgoing site</a>

Jumping outgoing site via single redirector, referers with detailed page names could be hidden. It is useful for private or restricted sites, for example project sites in local networks. This plugin contains simple redirectors.

Or, using bookmark site del.icio.us:

<a class="ext-link" href="http://del.icio.us/url?url=http://foo.bar.com">outgoing site</a>
