How to disable pop-up viewing?

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,

Hi Peter,

On Dashboard, user can click to show blog post in new window. And there he can visit links etc.. But here is chance to access on somewebsites, where can be something wrong... So is it possible to disable opening blog post in new windows?
