Interesting but doesn't work with buddypress

By hernan2022 on December 6, 2022

It would be great if they could optimize the plugin for bbpress/buddypress

Superb plugin marred by dashboard popup spam

By anotheropus (AnotherOpus) on October 3, 2022

I love this plugin. This should be a default, core WP option. This plugin is that good. However, everytime you create a new site and ativate this plugin the dashboard gets yet another dashboard spam popup:
Thank you for installing the WP External Links plugin! Open WP External Links to manage your links, and configure settings.
Dear plugin and theme developers. We KNOW we installed your tool. We KNOW we can get to your settings to dial things in. Please stop building dashboard spam popups. I wish THAT was a core WP feature. Zero Dashboard spam popups. Until then maybe someone can write a plugin that everyone can install that prevents WP dashboard spam popups and prevents the stacks of messages at the top of the dashboard about plugins that have been installed. We KNOW we installed them! :)

Bad for SEO

By landed on September 29, 2022

If this operates on an SEO basis then the link changes from what google initially crawls. This is going to look like black hat stuff and external links likely to get you in trouble. Unless I am missing something. No docs or anything?

I was using their other product External Links In New Windows and it stopped working. I found this after doing a search and it's amazing. It not only works, but so far I haven't had any conflicts. This is my own question, but under the Internal Links in the Settings, there's only a checkbox that says, "Apply These Settings". The only problem is that there are no settings to apply. There's only the checkbox. Is that normal? The only gripe I have is the annoying box urging you to go pro that takes up too much real estate. No way to turn it off or the floating icon in the bottom-right corner. Oh well. Maybe in the next version.

Nice plugin, very useful
