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!

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!

So good and so basic, should be part of core.

Keeps visitors from accidentally abandoning our sites, offers cleaner code than target=_blank, and is a lot more convenient than adding that to every link. Works every time, and is on my short list.

So easy, so necessary

If you include links to other sites in your posts, you risk losing readers if you don't force those links to open in new tabs/windows. We've always been diligent about manually selecting the option to open a link in a new window, but it's an easy thing to forget. This plugin eliminates those errors and keeps your site open on your readers' browsers while still allowing them to check out the links you feature.

Works right out of the box
