URL storage and checking

URLs that are input either using the URL or the XML block datatype are stored and handled in a special way. This solution makes it possible to view, edit and check if the URLs actually work on a massive scale. Please refer to the "URL storage" section of the "Concepts and basics" chapter for more information about this feature.
