Please start a new threat for any new question!

for a possible solution to your problem.



Don't understand this it was a new thread. Original e-mail below. Just
as puzzling is that your post can through twice.

Any way thanks for the suggestion. I've looked at it but I'm not clear
as to how I implement it.

I have added:-

$wgExternalLinkTarget = '_blank';

And external links now open in a new tab as I wanted. Except for
external link I have added in  the "navigation" and "toolbox" sections.
Can I correct this?


MediaWiki v1.16.0, PHP v5.2.6 and MySQL v5.0.77 Apache v1.3.41
