I have the plugin “Open external links in a new window” installed. I have the latest version of both the plugin and of WordPress.
It is a photoblog, and I have been setting all text links to open in a new window using the built in WP tools, but I haven’t been doing so for the images. So I installed the plugin, and in my personal limited testing, it has only worked in a Chrome browser on a Mac. It does not work on Firefox, Camino or Safari on a Mac, and it also does not work on Explorer, Firefox or Chrome on a Windows 7 machine.
The blog is here http://toomuchglass.net/
Individual posts include:
If you click on the image in any of those posts it takes you to a SmugMug page with the appropriate image and I would like it to do so in a new tab or window. Since I installed the plugin, it does on the Chrome browser on the Mac, but not in any of the other browser/OS combinations mentioned above. If I deactivate the plugin it stops opening a new tab on the Chrom/Mac combination, so I am pretty certain that the plugin is properly installed and there is not some other reason why the Mac/Chrome browser opens the link in a new tab. I have only tested this on the two machines I have access to so I have no idea if you can recreate my results.
Thanks for any help that can be provided.
