This is a specific question, but it exposes a serious flaw in the Atalassian's approach to cloud apps. I want to simply open an external link on my Confluence page in a new tab. Simple, right???
Well, no such luck. Search on this, and you get answers that apply to previous versions of Confluence. Ah, I am a smart guy, so I think, let's see what version I am running. Lo and behold. the cloud based Atlassian apps don't use versions. I can assume it is the latest version, but still don't know how to search properly.
So anyway, how do you make external links open in a new tab?
A lot of the answers you've found apply to current versions of Confluence, not just "previous". Cloud Confluence does have versions, but they're mostly irrelevant to you because Cloud is upgraded automatically and you can always assume it is latest or only one release behind.
But the answers don't apply to Cloud because you can't implement the changes there.
The way to make external links open in a new tab is "move to Server Confluence and hack that to add the function".
