Link to WordPress in Dashboard to open in a new window

  1. steveparkinson

    Hi Guys,

    It would be nice if the link at the bottom of the dashboard did not take me away from my dashboard, but just opened the link in a new window.

    Should take you seconds to implement.

    I have more ideas, but will put them in new posts so as not to confuse things.

    I was going to create a new topic here to handle this, but I'm glad you've already addressed it. On my retirement website I would like to implement this function.

    If the right click on the dashboard and select open in the new tab will take time and felt a little uncomfortable. This is a good idea, I appreciate it.

    It definitely would take seconds to implement.

    For those who can't wait until this idea gets added to core I've created a lightweight plugin to make the link open in a new tab right now - https://github.com/graphicscove/wp-footer-link
