Force all external links into a new tab?

Question

I am trying to get the clickthrough URL of each image in my galleries to open in a new tab. I did some digging and I noticed that each gallery image has the <div class="margin-wrapper"> on it. So I am thinking if I can have anything that has that class open in a new tab I should be good?

How can I change all external links contained within <div class="margin-wrapper"> to automatically open in a new blank target tab?

Usually I just make the link say:


<a href="http://www.whatever.com" target="_blank">link text</a>

So, pretty much just adding target="_blank" inside your link code will make clicking the link open a new tab (or window; depending on the visitor’s browser preferences).

Not sure how to code it to be universal, or if you can. I’ve only ever done it on individual link codes.

I made and account on this site JUST to answer this. That's how much thankful I am.I've been struggling with this for like 2 hours, damn it! Your answer just solved it automagically.

I have a page with dynamic content generated through a php function and trying to assign the target blank attribute to links within a div class didn't work. Your solution just did.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This worked great, except that it opens header links in a new window too. Anyone know how to get around that? Thanks!

Just tried this and it worked to only apply to a certain block:


<base #yourBlockId target="_blank"/>

Hi all, I tried adding target="_blank" to the end of my redirect url but it isn't working. I've waited approximately 30mins and it still isn't working. Any suggestions?

This is what it currently looks like: https://embodhii.org/emotional-freedom2pxiu8yh"target="_blank

Thanks in advance!

@clro it should be

<a href="https://embodhii.org/emotional-freedom2pxiu8yh" target="_blank">Text link</a>

or

<a href="https://embodhii.org/emotional-freedom2pxiu8yh" target="_blank">https://embodhii.org/emotional-freedom2pxiu8yh</a>
