[resolved] Master Overrides not working or ? (3 posts)

    I'm assuming that Master Override settings will override those settings in the edit pages screen. They don't seem to have any effect. For instance, Open New Window, I would think if it's set in Master Override that it would then be set/checked on the the edit page screen.

    Am I missing something here ?

    in most cases, you would be correct... but the that really depends on how you theme actually creates the links or menus. The current version of the plugin cannot open links in a new window if the theme just calls the permalink and places it in an href attribute of an anchor tag, as there is nothing that can check it after it is created that way (usually this is the case for featured items, slider slides, etc.)

    For it to open in a new window, it must have been generated by a function that returns the entire link, like in the menus, or page lists, etc. That is always the biggest misconception about that functionality not working.

    The next version, due out in a few days, will have some jQuery functionality with it, that will allow the plugin to check ANY link on the page, including those in the content, and add the appropriate new window attribute, as well as the rel=nofollow attribute when needed.

    Look for the new version soon. It will probably solve all of your issues.

    The new version had to have this option removed due to too many conflicts. When we have a new fix, we will update - but not too soon, as we don't want to bother people after the 3 updates in one day fiasco that happened after the upgrade.
