Open external links in a new window

Descrizione

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.

Known bugs

Installazione

  1. Copy the plugin to /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Eventually, change the settings in Settings->External links.

Works great. No more adding target="_blank" to any URLs. Everything not originating from my sites now open in their open window. Perfect.

Worked with this plugin on a website, pretty great. Now, I'm working on a new website, and the plugin leads to have links open in a new tab, BUT IT ALSO opens them in the old tab. Any idea how to fix that? best wishes Inter
