How to make all links open in new windows

­

This request to make all hyperlinks pops up every now and then so might as well make a post for it. To make all links open in new window is amazingly simple. Just sign into
DASHBOARD > DESIGN > EDIT HTML
to open template editor

Use
keyboard shortcut ctrl+F to find <head> and immediately after
that, add a single line <base target=’_blank’ /> so that it become

<head>
<base target=’_blank’ />

Save the edited template and viola, all links in your blog will now open in new tabs or windows.

Note:
Blogger is now XHTML so all tags must have matching closing tags or be
self closing. The above tag is self closing because it has that forward
slash / at the end of the tag.

Note 2: Just wondering if adding a
note for frequent visitors to set browser to open in new tabs rather
than new windows will reduce the number of visitors having an
unmanageable numbers of new windows opened. Do leave your opinions in
