URL Indicator

A while ago there was a vB mod that would place a small icon after every live link. Just tried to replicate it with the censor filter to add an image after [/URL], but no go. Only works when you type that in manually.

Anyway, I'd like to eventually see this as a mod. Makes it really easy to identify hidden spam links where the spammer makes the color of the text the same as the background.

It's possible to do that entirely via CSS. Every external link is tagged with a class of "externalLink", so all you need to do is apply a background-image to it. Sample CSS:

.message .messageText .externalLink,
.message .signature .externalLink
	padding-right: 18px;
	background-image: url('@imagePath/arrow-up.png');
	background-position: center right;
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
