There is no settings page, just look for the Link Away settings box when editing posts. Works on regular and public custom post types.

It's a pretty simple plugin. If you don't want to change a post, just ignore the Link Away settings, but when you do want a post to link away, add the complete URL where you want users to go.

Optionally, you can select to have the new location open in a new window.

Click the test button and the URL will open in a small popup in case you want to verify the URL before you update the post.
