    i love your plug in. great job!
    is there any way to set all of the items that show up in the preview (i am using the banner template and just showing the recent update information), to open on a new page. i know I need to change the target to _blank in html. When I view page source I can see that

    <a href="#"
    is called. so i am thinking that maybe i can modify your code.?

    If I have to modify your code, I am willing (yes, I know it will be erased upon upgrade).

    i dont know anything at all about js and barely anything about php, but I can cut and paste if you tell me what to change.
    thanks so much. Wendy

    or.. better yet.. open in a lightbox? I would actually prefer to open them with a lightbox effect and then they dont have to leave the page.
    What I cant figure out is:
    which lightbox effect will allow me to open external links?
    and how to i call the effect? in your php i see that rel is set to exernal, and most of the lightboxes need you to set rel to something like lightbox. so.. i am confused. any ideas?

    The preview is actually provided by Google via the Google Ajax API. Therefore you won't be able to achieve it by modifying the html.

    Instead, you would have to change the JavaScript that is generated by the plugin.

    That is very hairy stuff. Instead, I could try to modify the plugin in the following way: In the WordPress link-manager, there is a setting for each of your links to open with the target "_blank". This setting is already use by the plugin for each link. I could try to use this settings for the previews also. If it works, I would include this feature in the next version of the plugin.

    However, I don't see a solution for your idea with the lightbox. I can't promise to realize that.
