[Typo3] Configuration of External Links

Once again and finally, hi list

finally I figured out how style.sitemap.gs can be extended so that external
urls are used in the menu.
Since the solution might be of interest for others, I post it here to
conclude this thread.

tt_content.menu.20.2 < styles.sitemap.gs

tt_content.menu. {
   stdWrap.cObject = CASE
   stdWrap.cObject {
    key.field = doktype
    default = TEXT
    default.field = title
    default.typolink.parameter.data = field:uid
    3 < .default
    3.typolink.wrap =
    3.typolink.parameter.data >
    3.typolink.parameter.dataWrap = http://{field:url}
  doNotLinkIt = 1
  subst_elementUid = 1
  wrapItemAndSub =

Of course, if you need external URLs on the third menu level
needs to be changed to tt_content.menu. On the first menu
level this solution
changes the font color.

Probably, styles.sitemap.text can be adopted with this solution accordingly,
but I didn't tested it.

One strange thing still happens, if you have on the third level just
External URLs, wget will still be
fouled with a wrong domain name. But if the first menu entry points to a
normal page everything
works fine. Well, I can live with that.

Thanks to Christopher for pointing me into the right direction.
