Most of the plugins that do "open all external links in new tab" do it with JS, which is fine and probably the best way to capture 100% of the links on a page (ratehr than output buffering the entire page which some used to do and is awful for performance.
if you're trying to reduce the JS on your pages though (I don't know, maybe for Google AMP?) and you only care about forcing links inside your post content doing it in PHP on page render like this is a better way (IMHO).
I do wish there was an option to disable "no_follow". While most people want no_follow, it's not always the best practice even for external links (we don't care about SEO, we care about people bouncing/closing pages before ad impressions are counted).
If you are into SEO you know about no follow. This allows you to add this to all or some outside links on your page.
I run several news aggregation sites, but the feed platform that I use makes it a global choice to add no follow or not. Since I want to charge for a featured contributor level to allow do-follow links as a feature, the whitelist option on this plugin was a godsend, saves me 20 minutes a day at least
Works great, simple but effective.
Worked fine with my custom post types.
Didn't work with plugin menues, but I made a suggestion for that https://wordpress.org/support/topic/filter-menu-links-too-please?replies=1#post-8397693.
Thanks for making this work public and free!
Works fine, thanks for awesome plugin.
Thanks for this awesome plugin. You rock! ;)
Thank you CyberNetikz for this plugin!
It saved me a lot of manual work for my blog at http://travel210.com
It worked like a charm after the install and activation!
I have a website that is filled up by affiliate links.
Few hours ago i discovered that the nofollow plugin i was using did not apply a nofollow to all external links. I also discovered i had a google penalty. So, i think that my past no follow plugin (it was WP nofollow plugin) has not his job. I had numerous problem by the past with this plugin like 500 errors...
On the other hand, your plugin works well and does not slow down the website.
I required a reliable plugin that could put a nofollow quickly on every external links ( i guess i have hundreds of them).
I am used to google penalty due to external links and i know my website will recover thanks to your website.
Good job !
To the point plugin that does what it says.
