You Like to Post Useful External Links, But Want to Keep Readers on Your Blog?

Nicki Edgell

Steps to Open all External Links in New Tab :

  • Go to your blogger dashboard
  • Select your blog >> Template
  • Backup your template before editing
  • Click on “Edit HTML”
  • Find </head> tag in HTML
  • Add the following piece of code just above the </head> tag
  • Save your Template, you are all done !!
Note : Please don’t add the red code if you already have jQuery library source code installed on your blog.
 <script src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
 <script type='text/javascript'>
 $(document).ready(function() {
 $("a[href^='http://']").each(
 function(){
 if(this.href.indexOf(location.hostname) == -1) {
 $(this).attr('target', '_blank');
 }
 }
 );
 $("a[href^='https://']").each(
 function(){
 if(this.href.indexOf(location.hostname) == -1) {
 $(this).attr('target', '_blank');
 }
 }
 );
 });
 </script>

Thankyou!

Please note that such scripts can sometimes yield unexpected results. If you do not have too many external links you can also set each individual one to open in a new tab via the link option available in your individual posts. This is actually what I have now done on this blog as I found that some internal links (specifically my featured posts and related posts also opened in new tabs using the above script when I didn't want them to). Before you know it you can have 6 tabs open which can be an annoyance.
