External Links in New Window / New Tab

Descrição

Opens external links in a new tab or a or new window. You can set URLs that should either be forced to open in a new window or ignored.

The plugin produces XHTML Strict compliant code and is search engine optimized (SEO).
This is done using JavaScript’s window.open()-function. It adds only a few lines of vanilla JavaScript to the page, and does not require any external libraries like jQuery.

Most other plugins perform a hack by altering the target parameter (i.e. <a href="http://somewhere.example" target="_blank">). That method is not XHTML Strict compliant.
This plugin handles the links client-side, which lets search engines follow the links properly. Also, if a browser does not support JavaScript, the plugin is simply inactive, and does not result in any errors.

Great plugin, great support! This one of my "must use" plugins, I install it always. Personally I don't when you click a link in a site and does not open in a new tab, to me every external link goes to a new tab. Simply.

WTF is "JS regular expression" and how do you separate them?? One star just because you don't tell normal people (in other words non-programmers) if you have to seperate vimeo.com from youtube.com with space, comma, colon, semicolon or what? I tried those four and they don't work. The plugin works, but only with ONE "JS regular expression" unless you explain in normal human language!
