    Thanks a lot, JFarrow this just may come in handy for something I have in mind.
  • that's a great tip. I use as similar code and works a treat. However, do you think there is a way to "exclude" specific external links? for example, can you force a specific external link to open in the same widow?


    thank you!

    • Thank you ... the _self command is not working.. please let me know if you come up with something.
  • Thank you. This is awesome!
  • Oh my God!  This is cool!  Just installed it on my site and I like it very much!  Ben
  • Great man, thanks a bunch.  Works perfect.



  • AWESOME!  I have been looking for this solution forever....
  • Hey - you know what I just found out that may be an issue for everyone? Every link will pop open a new window, meaning if a user clicks on a Blog post, or Forum post it opens it in a new window. May not be the best user experience though.

    Any possible fix for this maybe? I dunno!
  • thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!
