External Links in New Window / New Tab

Descrizione

Opens external links in a new tab or a or new window. You can set URLs that should either be forced to open in a new window or ignored.

The plugin produces XHTML Strict compliant code and is search engine optimized (SEO).
This is done using JavaScript’s window.open()-function. It adds only a few lines of vanilla JavaScript to the page, and does not require any external libraries like jQuery.

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.

I tried 3 other external link plugins for a specific site using Beaver Builder and OceanWP theme. This plugin worked. Thank you!

The whole point was for embedded links (those that I can't edit with html) to open in a new tab. Simply does not work. From the description, it sounds like it should. Don't know how to solve this problem.
