A note about the CSS
This module adds a CSS file that is only a few lines in length. You may choose
to move this CSS to your theme to prevent the file from needing to be loaded
separately. To do this:
.infofile for your theme and add this line of code to prevent the
extlink.cssfile from loading:
stylesheets[all] = extlink.css
Copy all the code from this module's
css/extlink.cssfile into your theme's
images/mailto.pngfiles to your theme's
Note that you DO NOT need to make an
extlink.css file in your theme.
Specifying the file in your theme's
.info file is enough to tell Backdrop not
to load this module's version of the CSS.
