When I insert a link anywhere in Confluence, the links always open in the same tab. We are using the Space sidebar links to store several assets about the project, like location of design files (Box.net), project canvas (mural.ly), etc..
Is there a way to make those links open in a new tab automatically?
You set the "target" property of the <a> tag to "_blank". You can do this with jQuery in your custom HTML header. However, if you only want certain links to open in a new tab, that will require you to identify those links (either by class or ID).
Here's an example where I have all "external" links open in a new tab:
<!-- Add target="_blank" to the URLs so that external links open in new browser page --> AJS.$("a[class='external-link']").attr('target','_blank');
