    404 Management

    404 Management by @Fosters saves your visitors from dead links.  The application manages 404 Page Not Found errors by allowing you to direct users to other URLs , error pages that boost usability, improve user experience, and even raise a smile.  
    The app manages 404 errors in two ways:
    All 404 Page Not Found errors will be recorded in a log You can redirect to a new target (eg. custom 404 error page) What are 404 Pages?
    A 404 page is also known as an “error page” or “Page Not Found” page. This page indicates that the user reached the domain they requested, but the URL path provided no information. 404 pages cover any broken or dead links on your site. 
    Your 404 page catches visitors who click on that broken link so they won’t get bounced off your site or rerouted to a broken page. Instead, they’ll get a simple error message that says “Page Not Found,” and they can go back and start over.  While it's better to usually fix the broken link, it's important to always have a 404 page in place as a backup.

    Redirect Links / External Links / Link To Profile

    This application allows you to define redirections to either dynamic IPS links like a members profile, or to hide links and to allow only specific members to visit them based on the group permissions.
     
    For example, some of you noticed probably notes like
    // see https://fosters.tech/links/project-permbug  in our source code which allowed our support and developers to get to the JIRA bugreport without revealing the real URL to others;)
    This is also a great way to create "lifetime" links, so you'll be able to change the redirect target frequently, but the URL to access this page (for example docs ) will remain the same ( IPS is doing this with their docs )

    Linkfavicon

    Linkfavicon adds a fun new way to show off links anywhere in your community.  It seamlessly blends favicon art into your text and makes websites immediately recognizable.  This lightweight app automatically adds favicons to all areas of your site, including:
    Forum posts Comments and Reviews Status updates And all other content from official IPS apps and also 3rd party apps Get LinkFavicon by @Fosters and bring linking to a whole new level!
    What are Favicons?
    Favicons are small square images used by web browsers to show a graphical representation of the site being visited and show on many places: browser toolbars, bookmarks, tabs, address bars, and desktop shortcuts.  They provide immediate identification of their represented sites, and play a critical role in site branding and product recognition.  You have probably seen many favicons before, even if you don’t know what they are.  
    Will this affect my site's performance?
    This app relies upon a fetch to Google's Shared Stuff (S2) service, so your server is not affected by the favicon pull.  Images are in PNG format (not ICO) and will render correctly in all browsers using the proper <img> tags.   Finally, this all happens asynchronously, so there is no delay to the page.
