Works but only if you specify the link type
By , for WP 4.3

It works here only if you specify the link type type to open.

The problem is there are more than one type of link I want to open in a new window/tab and you can only specify one.

Also, you can see the support here is non-existent.

Just what I needed

This is one of the few plug-ins that is a total breeze. It's exactly what I needed. Their is no other way that I could find to force the VANTAGE theme circle icons to open an external page in a new window. I just works.

Just works, period.

Just needed something to add this functionality for some areas of my site that didn't allow by default the option to open in a new window/tab. Of all the options I looked at, this one immediately stuck out for its wide range of supported WP releases and its small footprint (one PHP file 7KB in size). Lets me know that the methodology isn't so entrenched in WP functions that it's trying to be more than it needs to be. Many thanks!

Just works

Install and forget - it just works! Internal links open in the same tab, external links open in a new tab. Works instantly on every link on your site. Thanks!
