    I’m using 5.5.1 and don’t have time to update for a few weeks.

    When I used target=”_black” WP automatically adds “nofollows” and I have a client who doesn’t want no follow.

    I need to use target=”_black”, but I need it to be a follow link. It was setup so the nofollows were hidden, but when I was fiddling with things I must have disabled it and now when you view source you can see the no follow again.

    What do I need to get rid of the no follow or hide them or something so they don’t show up when someone views source?

    Are you using an SEO plugin? I think that’s from a plugin, not core.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your reply.

    No, I’m not using a SEO plugin. Because I’m using an older version of WP, I removed all the plugins except for what I absolutely need. I’m moving the site in about a month, I’m trying to get get through the next month.

    WP automatically puts in the noopener noreferrer when you use target=”_blank” – I need to know the pluging or whatever it is that removes it.

    Found It!!

    It’s the plugin: “Remove noreferrer”
    I was looking for nofollow and noopener – DUH!

    One more thing, just to be on the safe side:
    target="_black" will work as you expect, but only the first time, since it will create a window with the name “_black”. Next time you click a link, that recently created window will change to the new URL.

    use target="_blank" instead 😀
