target="_blank" option

target="_blank" option

Short, concise description of the idea
Add a "target" option to the link window in the Rich Text composer of the web interface.

Full description of the idea
Everytime I put a link in my posts using the RTF web interface at LJ, I open up the source code window afterwards to add an extra target="_blank" to the link tag. It shouldn't be too difficult to add an option that adds that automatically by tickbox or something similar?

An ordered list of benefits
  • Users can browse link suggestions by others more comfortably, keeping the original journal open

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None that I could imagine, as long as you keep the allowed attribute in "target" limited to "_blank" to avoid messing with frames

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Just implement an extra radio button or, better, a tickbox to indicate that you want the link to open in a new window, which simply adds target="_blank" to the tag.
