-->This plugin makes all the external links open in a new window on your joomla website.
-->The plugin runs a jquery which will add target="_blank" for all your external links
-->It will skip those external links whose target has been purposely set by you to target="_parent"
-->You can also configure it to work in joomla backend as wel
Can you tell me which version of Jomsocial you are using ? as we just checked and did not find any such issue with our plugin.
Simply install and activate this plugin, and all external links now open in a new tab.
Simple, easy, and just what I needed!
Thanks a lot to the developer.
There's an issue with JQuery which is either on or off for the entire site through the plugin; with a number of other extensions using JQuery this makes configuring each one of them a pain.
But the big problem for me is that when the plugin is turned on it makes my popup windows appear on a new page and no longer in a popup which is a real pain.
Looks like I'm going to have to uninstall this -- it needs a lot more thought before it is working efficiently.
Saved me a lot of work changing the "TARGET" tag.
Suddenly, my Joomla backend stopped working just to figure out it was a problem cause by the jQuery of the extension and I had to sadly disable it!
I encourage fixing it up and call people to use it =)
You can disable the plugin in the joomla backend by changing the plugin params. It is pretty simple. Just do the following
1. Log into backend
2. Go to plugin manager
3. Open the plugin ext_blank
4. Set Enable in backend to no
I was told to override whatever modules and was provided a link to get more information. I have posted on many forums and looked in search engines to learn more about the override feature.
I don't want to learn everything about development. I am a designer and these small things are time consuming.
Thank you for being one of the smart developers that creates non-commercial solutions without needing to figure that out too.
