function popuplinks($text) {}

Adds a element attributes to open links in new windows.
Comment text in popup windows should be filtered through this. Right now it’s a moderately dumb function, ideally it would detect whether a target or rel attribute was already there and adjust its actions accordingly.


  • string $text: Content to replace links to open in a new window.

Return values

returns:Content that has filtered links.

Source code

function popuplinks($text) {

	$text = preg_replace('/<a (.+?)>/i', "<a $1 target='_blank' rel='external'>", $text);

	return $text;
