An easier way.....

After reading my Link Tips post at The Alliance basil of basil's blog has come up with an alternative for adding target="_blank" to every link you add.

basil explains on how to set the default target so your links open in new windows / tabs by default.

The change has been made here and I'm greatly appreciated for the tip, as it makes blogging easier.

Thanks basil!

Update: When using MT there are a couple of places target="_self". The main places are the pemalinks. To keep a new window from popping up when you submit a comment add target="_self" to the <form method="post".... line on the individual template.

There's a cool doohickey you can add to the page so people can select if they want to open in the current page or open in a new page.

Wish I remembered where I saw that one.

Ooh. Yucky.

When you add a comment a new window opens up for that too.

Sweet as it is, you need to make sure that you adjust the rest of your HTML, dude. Click the link to open the previous post's extended entry...all is well. Click again to close it and it opens in a new window. You gotta watch "shortcuts" like that! ;-)
