The "sem-external-links" plugin is a plugin that should be part of WordPress by default, in my opinion. The plugin is also helpful on my website ( http://dcjtech.info/ ).
When using this plugin, keep in mind that valid URL characters include
A-Z a-z 0-9 - . _ ~ : / ? # [ ] @ ! $ & ' ( ) * + , ; =
This is the best Plugin i have ever seen. keep it up.
Im not a big fan of bashing plugins and I have seen many users have success with this plugin. My issue is not related to the plugin, but the combination of Pantheon and this plugin being used on the same install. It causes a conflict with my php sessions. External Links has over 40,000 active installs and you can trust that it will work in most cases. I consider my conflicts to be attributed to the combination of using a session manager by Pantheon. I like the Pantheon and I will use this plugin on my other sites.

Why external links aren't treated this way by default beats me.
This plug-in wouldn't work for me... Adds rel="nofollow" to links even when I've added rel="follow" (per instructions).
I tried for a while and gave up... Will have to find another one!
with very useful options, feel easy to deal with urls. Thanks.
I am using Buddypress and this solves the need to open links in the Buddypress wall in a new window
worked as soon as I went to settings and set all links to open in a new tab.
It is so perfect! Saved me hours of going thru links!!!!
