All my links on links.php and my rotating banners and my rdf feed always open in the window my site is. Is there somewhere in config.php that I can make everything open in a blank page?

For the links.php, change <a href="{link_url}"> to
<a href="{link_url}" target="_blank"> in linkdetails.thtml, which is located in the links directory (folder) in each theme directory (folder).
Too many hands on my time.


The links on your main index page will still go to the same window your site is in.

If you want, you can edit the lib-common.php file (or add it to lib-custom.php, preferably) and find the following (it's around line 4260):

// Trim the length if over 16 characters
$itemlen = strlen( $A['title'] );
if( $itemlen > 16 )
$newlinks [] = '<a href="' . $lcount . '" title="'
. $A['title'] . '" target="_blank">' . substr( $A['title'], 0, 16 )
. '...</a>' . LB;
$newlinks[] = '<a href="' . $lcount . '" target="_blank">'
. substr( $A['title'], 0, $itemlen ) . '</a>' . LB;

Note the target="_blank" I added to those two parts.
