Opening links in a new window

Is there any way that I can force links in the body of a post to open in a new window (and possibly resized as well)?

Thanks in advance

Do you want to do this for all links automatically (and if so, for internal links inside your own site as well?), or selectively for specific links?

Selectively for specific links, without resizing, would be accomplished by adding (in HTML mode, in the WP editor) target="_blank" to the link

HTML Code:
<a href="http://www.otherdomain.com/" target="_blank">...</a>
Selectively, with resizing, replace the whole link with

HTML Code:
<a href="javascript:newwindow()">Click Here!</a>
and at Theme Options -> HTML/CSS Inserts -> CSS Insert add:
HTML Code:
 <script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function newwindow() {
window.open('http://wordpress.bytesforall.com/','something','width=300,height=200,resizable=yes');
}
//-->
</script>
Firefox will not obey to the size settings though, if it set to open links in a new tab instead of a new window.

Thanks for the selective coding.

I was thinking of arranging things so that all links in the body of a post (other than internal links inside my own site [if that option is possible] would open in a new window (resized). Can this be done?

Thanks again

Try Identify External Links - does not do much else and let you put a little "external" icon/symbol next to link. The other extension he link to has tons of icons to pick from.

Some dont like website to decide this, like against the rules!, so may be consider Open offsite links in new Windows You need to run the script and put tickbox at top of sidebar - or where ever. Then if user is unhappy about being sent offsite he/she can just untick box, which defaults to offsite.

You could use plugin only for getting neat external icon and let script take care of off/onsite.

Hi

Thanks for the suggestions. I intend to try "Link Indication" plugin, as I think it could do what I want.

I'll update this post when I have tried it out.

Many thanks again.

I noticed on/off-site script dont work with https adresses. But I think most http will direct to https if that is required so not a big problem. Just so you know if you want users to have enable/disable option.

Uh-oh, I noticed the "with resizing" link doesn't work with Firefox. Any help? I need it to work there.
