    Is it possible to somehow setup WordPress so that when you use the LINK button in the dashboard, when creating a story, it will automatically makes links open in new windows. Users have commented on how its annoying to always leave my site and have to come back. I'd like to be able to use the same easy LINK function in WordPress, without having to add the code myself each time.

    Thanks =)

    I dont remember the name of it or the link, but it was on one of the plugin pages.. I found it by doing a search for plugins and wordpress in google, or there are pleanty of posts with the link to plugin pages.

    I just founf it easier to do external links by hand.

    Down at the bottom of the post (below the last "update" text, under the horizontal line), there's a link to a modified quicktags.js file.

    If you want comment links to open in new windows also, grab the plugin, too. :)
