#8137 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow overriding field autolinking from field type

Reported by: sbrajesh's profile sbrajesh Owned by: imath's profile imath
Milestone: 6.0.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.0
Component: Extended Profile Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch commit
Cc: sbrajesh


Currently, The auto linking is not controllable from field type(unless you hack around it and meta).

Not all fields are auto linkable(example, oembed, role etc ).

There should be a simple way to allow developers either toggle support for auto linking in admin(type supports check?) or atleast disable the filtering on the front end.
We can add a new method or field on the field type class to check if we should auto link or not.

It is feasible to disable but there is no direct way. Can we make it simple?

Thank you

Or may be even adding a filter in the


which passes the field id or object will suffice.

Thank you

Yes, we can probably do both of these - a property on Field_Type objects as registered in plugins, and a filter. Can you suggest a patch?

Thank you for the prompt reply. Sure, I will love to.

Since these two approaches are not mutually exclusive, I guess, we will need 2 different patches ?
Should I add the filter first and then the other one?

Thank you
