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: 1.2.0
Requirements: phpBB 3.2, phpBB 3.3
The attribute rel=noopener noreferrer is always added to external links to prevent a possible security issue, see this article for more information.
The extension can be configured in the Admin Control Panel:
If enabled in the Admin Control Panel, the board users can configure in their User Control Panel if they would like to open external links in a new window. You can configure a default behavior in the Admin Control Panel that is used if a user does not choose a setting on his own.
- 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.
