Below the External URL field I wanted a checkbox to say whether the link in the field was an external URL (in which case to use it to conditionally add target=_blank to the html generated). I managed to create the checkbox in the manage.php, but could not get it to store its value in the database. I cant seem to find any docs to say what arguments it needs

Doe anyone know how to do this?
