    Links within posts should open new explorer windows

    Issue Number:
    194
    Severity:
    Minor
    Description:
    A peave of mine is to 'have to leave the site' in order to explore a link within a post. I know that I can always right-click to 'open a new window/tab', but often I forget to do this.

    The default for links within posts or basically all links that are not associated with the site's internal navigation ought to be to 'open a new tab/window' by default.

    Try dat.  It's a plug-in module for Drupal called External Links.  Any link that leads to an off-site location will be identified with a symbol next to it.  Clicking that link should open in another tab/window.  Give it a try and let me know if you likey so I can close this issue.

    Seems to be working for me.  I clicked on an external link and it opened up in a new window using Firfefox.
