Add-On Type(s)



The ‘Link Target’ plug-in helps keep your template code clean by writing all the JavaScript link parameters for you.

This is something you would usually achieve with:
@My Link Text@

...but that’s not valid XHTML so instead we need to do:
@My Link Text@

The ‘Link Target’ plug-in just helps to keep your template code clean by writing all the JavaScript for you. Typical usage of the plug-in is as follows:
@{exp:np_linktarget url=“” target=‘top’}My Link Text{/exp:np_linktarget}@

By default you have to specify a ‘url’ and ‘target’ parameter and the plug-in also optionally accepts a link ‘title’ and ‘class’. Possible ‘type’ values are ‘top’ and ‘blank’. Each mimic the link target attributes ’_top’ and ’_blank’ respectively.
