Force External Links to Open in a New Window Using JQuery

headmaster @ 11:15 pm


jQery LogoI’m using an RSS feed script to import news feeds into on one of my sites. The problem is that the RSS links open by default on the current window. Instead I want the RSS links to open in a new window only. That is, all external links on the page need to open as _blank. And all internal links (links to current site) should open in the current window.

It seems this is something that should be part of the RSS script, unfortunately the script I’m using does not have that functionality. Or at least not in an easily configurable way that I could find.

Having no time to delve into the innards of the RSS script instead I opted to override the links behavior using JQuery. See the solution below.

Web Page Redirection

301 RedirectionWeb Page redirection is a common task for any web master. In my winding road along this newly emerging dimension in human consciousness better known as the web, I have had the need to utilize page redirection for many different purposes, in many different ways. I have found that the method of implementing a redirection solution depends on your reason for performing that redirect.
