Open external links in a new window

描述

Opens external links (starting with http:// or https://) in a separate browser window (or tab). 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.

Installation

  1. Copy the plugin to /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate the plugin.
