rel=”external” in a New Window

Description

rel=”external” is now the XHTML valid version that informs search engine spiders that the link is external. However, using this does not open the link in a new window. target=”_blank” and target=”_new” does this, but is not XHTML valid.

This very simple plugin adds a small JS file to your header to let this happen!

Installation

You can install this in 2 easy steps without any need for configuration:

  1. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Go to the Plugins page and activate the plugin!

You can also visit the rel=”external” plugin page. You also have a setting to call the JS inline or as an external file – it’s up to you!
