Hello! I checked the option “Open external links in a new tab” in Discourse settings. When I clicked the links on the banner, it doesn’t open a new window. I’ve tried different browser/incognito. It seems like the option “Open external links in a new tab” only works if you leave a external link in the post/comment. What am I doing wrong here?
You’re not doing anything wrong, that feature wasn’t considered when building this component. I’ll make a note to add it when I have a little time.
Ah, ok. Thank you @awesomerobot for creating this component.
I’ve just merged in an update so external links will obey the user’s preference:
you’ll just need to update the component for this to work
