I was having so much trouble with the "Visit Site" buttons on my external products because they would open in the same tab and make users leave my site. Other plugins to help with this were confusing! And some even changed ALL of my links (internal AND external) to open in a new tab. I only wanted External links to open in new tabs and not have a bunch of settings to mess with, so then I found this one and it WORKED PERFECTLY!!! Thank you SO much for making this plugin!!! Super simple and it works!

This little one-trick pony does what it says it will and there are no settings to mess with. Every link to an external site is opened in a new browser tab. Couldn't be easier.
