Change Rel External to Target Blank using Prototype

 / Published in: JavaScript


There's been a popular trend to use JavaScript to add target="_blank" to anchors with rel="external". So in the name of making everything in my site Prototype based I worked out a script to do just that.

  1. <script type="text/javascript">
  2. Event.observe(window, 'load', function() {
  3. $$('a[rel="external"]').each(function(link){
  4. if(link.readAttribute('href') != '' && link.readAttribute('href') != '#'){
  5. link.writeAttribute('target','_blank');
  6. }
  7. });
  8. });
  9. </script>
