When dealing with content with several, external links where it is natural to open a new tab, its very cumbersome and easy to forget to tick the “Open in new tab” - box. Is it possible to make this configurable somehow?
A workaround, Runar: What about resolving this automatically in the back-end, by creating a response processor that adds target="_blank" to any A tags where href does not contain specific domain(s)? Although then the checkbox in the UI will become ubiquitous.
Here’s some input on the topic: https://medium.com/the-metric/links-should-open-in-the-same-window-447da3ae59ba
Maybe you should reconsider opening new tabs, like other newspapers (i.e. Aftenposten)
