Can all links be opened in a new window by default?

Hi there,

My users are uploading HTML content via a RadEditor control on their personal page.  (They will be pasting content from a source with the Editor in Design Mode rather than entering HTML directly.)  I would like to set the RadEditor control so that any links they include in their content automatically have a target="_blank" attribute inserted (if not already present), or do something equivalent so that on the resulting page the links will be opened in a new window/tab (rather than taking the viewer away from my web-site).  Any suggestions?

All advice gratefully received,

Ed Graham

Hi Ed,

You can set target="_blank" to all links in the content area when submitting the content with the script below:
<script type="text/javascript">  
function OnClientSubmit(editor)   
{                                                         
    var links = editor.get_document().getElementsByTagName("A");  
    for (i=0; i<links.length;i++)  
    {  
        var link  = links[i];  
        link.setAttribute("target", "_blank"); 
    }  
}  
</script>  
<telerik:RadEditor runat="server" OnClientSubmit="OnClientSubmit" ID="RadEditor1" >  
    <ImageManager ViewPaths="~/" UploadPaths="~/" />  
    <Content>  
        <a href="http://www.telerik.com">Telerik</a><br />sample content<br />  
 
        <a href="http://www.telerik.com">Telerik</a><br />sample content<br />  
 
        <a href="http://www.telerik.com">Telerik</a><br />sample content<br />  
 
        <a href="http://www.telerik.com">Telerik</a><br />sample content<br />  
 
        <a href="http://www.telerik.com">Telerik</a><br />sample content<br />  
 
    </Content>  
</telerik:RadEditor>  
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Submit" />
