Open external links in a new window
[resolved] Great Plugin! Possible Enhancement? (5 posts)

    This is a very handy plugin. For those who don't regularly think about making their external links open in new windows, so as to keep people from leaving a site, this is a great plugin to save some traffic for the less technical! :)

    One suggestion would be for links whose URLs contain /wp-admin/ to open in a new window/tab. Of course, this would be for only those who are logged in. When you're in the WP back-end, links would NOT open in new windows/tabs.

    Of course, this suggestion could be a plugin option. If someone doesn't like this, they can turn it off.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks!
    Adam

    Dear Adam

    Thanks for your feedback. I plan on implementing two lists, one for forced inclusion (like wp-admin) and one for forced exclusion (e.g. for those that use external image hosting etc.)

    It will be released at some point in the future - currently, I don't have a time frame.

    Kind regards,
    Kristian

    Hi Adam.
    I just released version 1.3 which lets you force certain URL's (like "wp-admin") to open in a new window. I hope it's useful.
    Thanks for the feature request,
    Kristian
