A Plone product that open external link on different browser window in accessible way (even using XHTML Strict)

Project description


General accessibility rule used here was taken from a guide written by Regione Emilia Romagna

Javascript code here has been moved to a jQuery environment.


The idea behind this is to enable in Plone the ability to open external link in different browser windows.

The right way to do this is to look for the rel=”external” attribute on link elements.

As far as Kupu and TinyMCE don’t support the rel attribute, here we also look for the class=”external-link” attribute.

Also anchor’s title will be changed/completed runtime with a more accessible message that warn user that a new window will be opened.
