Accessible External Text Links

I created this plugin to make external text links more accessible to people with disabilities

  1. Upload accessible_external_links folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Go into the admin panel of the plugin and fill the 'Image alternative text (alt attribute content)' field with the alternative you fish to display default : "Opens in a new window"
  4. add a class of "external" on the links you wish to open in a new window.

For example use <a class='external' href='your link url'>My Link</a>

If you encounter some problems with icon positionning you can add a class of :

a.external img{}

in your theme style.css file to control the image positionning
