open link within replys in a new window

  • I´ve seen a couple suggestions to do the above. But it seems it needs to be more simplified for me to make it work.

    So could anyone explain how to make it happen – in a “for dummys”-way.

    I thought i had the hang of it – but noo.

  • <?php
    Plugin Name: Open Links in New Window

    function bb_target_blank( $text ) {
    $text = preg_replace('|<a (.+?)>|i', '<a $1 target="_blank">', $text);
    return $text;
    add_filter('post_text', 'bb_target_blank',255);


    Put the above into a file and save it as new-window-links.php or similar in your my-plugins directory. Then enable it in the plugins menu. Should work. Avoid getting any spaces around the start and end tags.


    feeling a like I´m starting to be a bit annoying for you now. But when i activate the plugin it just makes any link with in a thread unclickable.

    What have I done wrong?

    Argh it ate part of it. Check the link and copy the line opening $text from there instead. There’s meant to be $1 in-between the spaces before target.

    Again kawuso,

    thanks a million times!

    Hey Kawuso. Can you re-post the correct code. I am having the same problem as BaraBajen had.


    Got it to work. Thanks.
