I need all references to external links in my post to open in a new page. I have multiple people set up as Authors and I don't want them to have to remember to add target="_blank" in the url. Is there a way to globally set this for posts?
a link that is part of the post text is not processed by the theme, it just calls the wordpress function 'the_content()' or 'the_excerpt()', so I think you wll have to find or code a plugin to examine the post content for any links then add that to the end.
