ProcessWire Module "AssistedURL Field"

This module offers you a new field type AssistedURL Field, providing and input field for storing absolute and relative URLs. The field type adds a button to open the URL chooser dialog known from the CKEditor link feature without the tab navigation bar for specifying link attributes.

Using the URL chooser dialog the editor may select URLs from internal pages or uploaded files via a search field with auto-completion, a page tree control, and a file selector control.

Installing the module

Just copy the module files into you site/modules/ folder or downoload it via the ModuleManager.
