well, nowhere do i see where i can add 'rel="external' in the links manager to do the popup. one puts the url in and ... there no way to edit anything that i can see.
[i am very new at wp. not sure where everything is yet or when i should bounce into bits to do this or that]
what i did find was if you scroll waaaaaaaay down in 'manage links' one can add target _blank
yes, i know, i'm breaking rules here, but they should make it easier if they want us to be all legal like
btw - i am not talking about the links throughout the site I am adding on the fly. I can do those fine. i am talking about the links that are input via the links manager. i tried putting code in with them and the code comes up in the link title.
and looks like your code needs 'rel="external' for it to work
css [can get by with assistance in tough times]
java - none
php - none
