Drupal Modul: Pathologic

Published › October 15, 2011 0 Comments


Pathologic is an input filter which can correct paths in links and images in your Drupal content in situations which would otherwise cause them to “break;” for example, if the URL of the site changes, or the content was moved to a different server. Pathologic can also solve the problem of missing images and broken links in your site’s RSS feeds. See more example use cases on the documentation page.

Pathologic is designed to be a simple, set-it-and-forget-it utility. You don’t need to enter any special “tags,” path prefixes, or other non-content garbage into your content to trigger Pathologic to work; it finds paths it can manage in your content automatically.

As Pathologic is an input filter, installation and configuration is a little more difficult than it is for a standard module — but it’s still not that tough, if you follow the full installation and configuration guide here.

Pathologic for Drupal 7 is out of beta! When upgrading from Drupal 6, instances of Pathologic in input/text formats should be preserved, along with settings. But please file an issue if something goes wrong (bonus points if you can provide a database dump of your site before running update.php after installing Pathologic for Drupal 7).

Multi-lingual support for Pathologic is a bit iffy. Please read and post in the issue queues if you have any issues, particularly when running Drupal 7.
