Open external links in a new window

Beschreibung

Opens external links (starting with http:// or https://) in a separate browser tab (or window). You can also specify certain URLs that should either be forced to open in a new window or ignored.
The plugin produces XHTML Strict compliant code and is also search engine optimized (SEO).
This is done using JavaScript’s window.open()-function.

Most other plugins perform a hack by altering the target parameter (i.e. <a href="http://somewhere.example" target="_blank">). That method is not XHTML Strict compliant.
This plugin handles the links client-side, which lets search engines follow the links properly. Also, if a browser does not support JavaScript, the plugin is simply inactive, and does not result in any errors.

Rezensionen

Wow; the plugin is fantastic! Simplicity at its finest!

Hello Kristian and kezze,

Thank you for this useful plugin, I am very grateful to you for sharing it with everyone. It simplifies the hassle of adding code and structuring links to open in a new window.

„Open external links in a new window“ is practical for the novice or expert user. I was delighted to experience posting an external link and know that it will be opened in a new window.

I wish you continued success with this plugin, other projects and all you do.

Best wishes

Brilliant!!

My Social Media links REFUSED to responds to target_blank – was pulling my hair out with coding – this is great!
