How to disable pop-up viewing?

Aleš Laňar Jun 24, 2013

Hi there,

i have question. Is possible to disable opo-up windows? I mean that, when i open a new blog post in pop-up, i can redirect everywhere. And that is bad for security reasons.

Thank you!

Ales

Resolved, to Custom HTML just insert that:

<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    jQuery(".external-link").attr("target", "_blank");
});

Hi,

If an user can navigate to different websites in a new window, they will be able to do the same in the original window as well.

However, you may want to try the tip here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/How+to+Force+Links+to+Open+in+a+New+Window

This is for forcing links opening in new window, but if you replace _blank with _self I believe it should have the effect you are looking for.

Kind regards,

Peter

Hi Ales,

Can you explain a bit on how popups breach security? Maybe understanding the whole approach would help to find a proper solution for the issue.

Kind regards,

Peter
