create the option for outside links to be set to open in a new tab by default.
I want outside links to open in a new tab - ALWAYS. When events are imported in, there is no setting for this as a default setting.
Are you referring to the Event Website URL, Organizer website, Venue website, or all links throughout your website?
I agree there needs to be a way to specify opening external links, such as Event Website, in a new tab. This option is available when editing a media link, but not available for external link fields, such as "event website," when editing the event itself.
Thanks for the quick response!
Here's our recommendation: Create a set of check boxes that allow you to do what you listed. As a minimum, provide check boxes that allow you to open the Event and Venue Website URL in a new tab.
Oh, and while updating the plug-in code, why not add the ability to print the Event (not Venue) Website URL? You would score lots of points with your customers.
Useful Info: Web developers, designers, marketers, and salespeople have confirmed that a website's SEO ranking will go up if these type of links open in a new page. Also, it allows the viewer to go back to the website's original page faster, thus providing a logical UX.
We second the above - with a small change: Add a tick box to the plugin to activate/deactivate opening a link (event, etc.) in a new tab.
