Is there any way that I can force Confluence to always open the destination page in a new tab?
I know that you can change IE's settings to do this, but I want to know if this is possible in Confluence, rather than the browser. If it has to be done in the browser, then I'll have to get everyone to change their browser settings, which won't happen.
thanks, that looks interesting. I'll pass it on to the senior admin and see what he has to say about it. The immediate downside is that this would be applied to the whole wiki, which might not be aceptable. If we can apply it to a specific space, that would be perfect.
I'll update my question when I find out more.
<script> AJS.$(".wiki-content a").attr("target","_blank"); </script>
The code above just turns the links within the wiki page defined by the css selector .wiki-content.
If you want to narrow the field of effect, just choose a different DOM parent element.
I don't know of a way, but I would just comment what an awfule browsing experience if ALL links opened in a new tab. I would have 16 tabs open just looking for the info I need. http://uxdesign.smashingmagazine.com/2008/07/01/should-links-open-in-new-windows/
Opening only external links may be a valid use case, which I have answered below.
Hi Mick! Not sure if you have Confluence OnDemand or standalone. For standalone, you can achieve that by adding some JS in the custom HTLM section. You'll see full instructions at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+Force+Links+to+Open+in+a+New+Window
For OnDemand you won't be able to insert custom HTML.
Hope it helps!
