Open external links in a new window
Opens external links (starting with
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).
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.
The plugin conflicts with other plugins that change the links’ `onClick´-attribute.
Copy the plugin to /wp-content/plugins/
Activate the plugin.
Eventually, change the settings in Settings->External links.
