I did push Mike to put this here just to get a solution up and running, and it gave me a start on doing it another way. I don't want to come off as poopooing his method, and I [url=http://isaacschlueter.com/blog/more_b2evo_hacking]even tried out something like it[/url]. But as I've thought about it more, using the target attrib is not really optimal. Also, you don't necessarily want local links to open new windows, even if you want remote links to (like on this forum.)
I posted another way to do this over at http://isaacschlueter.com/projects/new_window_links
You'd still do all the updating to your skin's _main.php file, where all the other XHTML is. Put keepYaLinksPoppin.js in your skin/skin_name folder, and then have a tag like this in the head section:
The advantage of Mike's system is that there's a checkbox that, when checked, makes the links behave one way, and when unchecked, they go back to normal. I haven't done that, but it shouldn't be too hard to stick it on.
