External Links in New Window / New Tab

描述

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.

If you need a more advanced plugin, with more options try our free WP External Links plugin.

I never realized that creating links could be so simple. The recent upgrade to WordPress 6.3 made the slider harder to enable. This plug-in helps me avoid all that hassle. Turns out, I was working to hard before version 6.3! (It used to be in the same pop-up menu when you entered in the URL for the link. 6.3 now makes you create the link, then edit it, open an advanced menu and then finally enable the slider button.)

Me ha sorprendido gratamente lo sencillo y eficiente que es. Muchas veces los clientes que editan contenidos se olvidan de linkar correctamente los enlaces externos… así queda resuelto. Es genial

Appena installato il plugin, senza alcun intervento da parte mia, ha fatto esattamente ciò che prometteva, che poi era quello che mi serviva: aprire semplicemente i collegamenti esterni in nuove schede, senza lasciare il sito…
