View Full Version : Resolved offsite links Resolved

02-12-2009, 11:12 AM

Is it possible to change this script in a manner that it opens all links in a new window? So even if they are of my own domain.
Now I am using the "target="_blank" syntax, but W3C does not like "target"
When using this script, W3C does not complain.

Just make sure your site is not mentioned here:

//1)Enter domains to be EXCLUDED from opening in new window:
excludedomains: ["dynamicdrive.com", "google.com"],

Good luck!

I have changed the assigntarget function and furnished below. Comment the default one and insert this one.

assigntarget: function() {
var rexcludedomains = new RegExp(this.excludedomains.join("|"), "i") var all_links = document.getElementsByTagName("a") if (this.mode == "auto" || (this.mode == "manual" && this.togglebox.checked)) {
for (var i = 0; i <= (all_links.length - 1); i++) {
if (all_links[i].hostname.search(rexcludedomains) == -1 && all_links[i].href.indexOf("http:") != -1)
if (ddwindowlinks.linktarget === '_blank') {
all_links[i].onclick = function() {
window.open(this.href, "");
return false;
} else {
for (var i = 0; i <= (all_links.length - 1); i++) all_links[i].target = ""
if (this.mode == "manual" && this.persist) this.setCookie("dlinktarget", (this.togglebox.checked) ? "yes": "no", 30) //remember user setting for 30 days (set to -1 then reload page to erase cookie)

At the moment I haven't used any of the parameters that can be used while opening a new window. You can use them based on your requirement.

Hope this helps.

You are right, but I did not mention my domain there.
But your answer made me understand what was wrong:
The link (to a page of my domain) referred directly to it`s place on the host.
In that case it opens in the same window.
Now I changed it to it`s complete internet address and it opens in a new window. Problem solved, thanks!
