How can I make external links from Confluence open in a new tab?

I can't seem to get any help from any of the articles on here. Could anyone help, please?

In the custom html seciotn of Confluence Admin add this to the after body section.

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
  AJS.$("a[href^='http']").not("[href*='" + location.host + "']").attr('target','_blank');
});
</script>

Worked like a charm! Thank you so much, Davin. Much appreciated.
