[ABD] Opening External Link in New Window

Post by digioz » Sun Dec 05, 2010 5:27 pm

Modification Name: Opening External Link in New Window
Author: digioz

Modification Description: Open External URL in a New Window
Modification Version: 1.0.0

Requirements: None
Supported PHPBB Versions: 3.0.8, 3.0.9, 3.0.10

Download: link_mod_1.0.0.zip
Source Code: DigiOz Github phpbb-mods

Demo: Demo Forum

Description: I was looking for this feature and the existing mods related to this subject all involved making changes to the actual database records, and I didn't want to do that. So this is an alternate way to open all external links using jQuery library

Image

Update:
7/28/11 - Added ModX Installer Download Link for installing through AutoMod.
  • Open the file "./styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html (repeat for all other styles).
  • Add the following code to the header region of the template (~line 92)

    Code: Select all

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js"></script>          
    <script type="text/javascript">                                         
       $(document).ready(function() {
          $('a[href^="http://"]').filter(function() {return this.hostname && this.hostname !== location.hostname;}).attr('target', '_blank');
       });                     
    </script>
    
That's all!
Pete

Brilliant … I added it after this ..

Code: Select all

<!-- IF not S_USER_LOGGED_IN and not S_IN_UCP -->
	<form action="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" method="post">
		<table class="toplogin" cellspacing="0">
		    <tr>
		        <td><span class="gensmall">{L_USERNAME}:</span></td>
		        <td><input class="post" type="text" name="username" size="10" style="width: 75px" /></td>
		        <td nowrap="nowrap"><input type="checkbox" checked="true" class="radio" name="autologin" /><span style="vertical-align: middle;" class="gensmall">{L_LOG_ME_IN}</span></td>
		    </tr>
		    <tr>
		        <td><span class="gensmall">{L_PASSWORD}:</span></td>
		        <td><input class="post" type="password" name="password" size="10" style="width: 75px" /></td>
		        <td><input type="submit" class="btnmain" name="login" value="{L_LOGIN}" /></td>
		    </tr>
		</table>
		{S_FORM_TOKEN}
	</form>
	<!-- ENDIF -->
I don't know why I put it there,, But it works just fine..

Thank You...

You could do that. I included it in the header region because that's the recommended place for it. Doesn't mean it won't work elsewhere though. ;)

The code goes in the overall header file, right before the </head> tag. Make sure to clear cache once you have made the change for it to take effect.

Correct. This gives you an easy and clean way to open up all external hyperlinks in new windows.

I am not familiar with slimbox. Do you have a link for it?

As for the beta stage download link, I wasn't aware this was required. I will put a modx package together for this as soon as I find the time.

Thanks this is working fine Yes Yes

EDIT

this script is working fine

but if you install the MChat and set the settings you can see the MChat on the index page and you will click on smilies or BBCodes it is than not working whit this script

how can i change that , that is working fine
if you can't fix it with ducktape you ain't using enough
if you want to search a MOD maybe you can find it here
For my MODS and BBCodes or other things that I have made take a look here
