djangocms-link2 1.1.0

django-cms link/-structure management plugin with filer file support

A link/-structure management plugin that replaces the plugin shipped with django-cms with a robust version that employs file fields from django-filer. It can be used as a drop-in replacement for cmsplugin_filer_link. The package contains a management command to migrate all existing Link-instances from cmsplugin_filer_link to link2.


cmsplugin_filer_link is already a great plugin and link2 builds on it. The following advantages are available in this package:

  • robust django-cms link plugin which doesn’t fail loudly
  • persists the internal url as well
  • can be copied safely between languages (even if the target page is not yet available in this language)
  • internal and external links are monitored (through a management command)
  • faulty links are visually highlighted for the content editor
  • an admin page lists all faulty links
  • easy migration from cmsplugin_filer_link (through a management command)


  • django-filer >= 1.2
  • Django >= 1.8
  • django-cms >= 3.1
  • djangocms-attributes-field
  • requests
