This plug-in has fixed an 'improvement' from WP 6.3

By mocha24 on September 2, 2023

I never realized that creating links could be so simple. The recent upgrade to WordPress 6.3 made the slider harder to enable. This plug-in helps me avoid all that hassle. Turns out, I was working to hard before version 6.3! (It used to be in the same pop-up menu when you entered in the URL for the link. 6.3 now makes you create the link, then edit it, open an advanced menu and then finally enable the slider button.)

A very useful and complete plugin. Nice Open source!

Thank you for this wonderful plugin, simply but powerful with the possibility to set some exclusion or inclusion of specific links.

Funciona como esperaba

Me ha sorprendido gratamente lo sencillo y eficiente que es. Muchas veces los clientes que editan contenidos se olvidan de linkar correctamente los enlaces externos... así queda resuelto. Es genial

Funziona perfettamente

By bigportal on October 26, 2022

Appena installato il plugin, senza alcun intervento da parte mia, ha fatto esattamente ciò che prometteva, che poi era quello che mi serviva: aprire semplicemente i collegamenti esterni in nuove schede, senza lasciare il sito...

Does the job (free), but spamming your dashboard

By donkrisho on November 1, 2020

I have a free version, it does the job just fine. But PLEASE stop spamming the dashboard and notifications with permanent discount offers!!!! Even once I went to the settings page and clicked on your popup "Don't show this again", guess what - it pops up again when I return there. This is a common sense issue, you are frustrating.
