Extension Description: Modifies external links (i.e. links to a resource outside of your board) to open in a new browser window by default.
Extension Version: 1.0.1 (release candidate, submitted to extension database: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... ew_window/)
Requirements: phpBB 3.2
The extension can be configured in the Admin Control Panel:
- Allow users to choose for themselves if they would like to open external links in a new window.
- Or force external links to be opened in a new window for registered users.
- Open external links in new window for guests.
- Open external links in new window for bots.
The extension only modifies these links when displaying a message (post, private message, etc.). It does not alter the messages that are stored into the database.
