I'm using a theme where social media icons can't be set to open in a new tab.......not even when creating new header and footer php files in a child theme with custom code from theme authors. Anyway, long story short, this plugin works perfectly and my social media icons now open a new browser tab.....sweet! Thanks!!

Great tools!

When theme developers are not responding - this is great, even better - no worries about parent theme breaking this way either. Thank you to these developers!

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.
