Automatically Open WordPress Links in a New Window and No-Follow Them

If you spend a lot of your time setting your external links to open in a new window, then the External Links plugin can take care of the job for you. In addition, it allows you to set the links as “nofollow” – something especially useful if you open your site up to postings from the general public.

In addition, you can set links to appear with an icon if you like.

Let’s take a look at the simple settings for the plugin.

Simple but effective.
