This request to make all hyperlinks pops up every now and then so might as well make a post for it. To make all links open in new window is amazingly simple. Just sign into
to open template editor

Use keyboard shortcut ctrl+F to find <head> and immediately after that, add a single line <base target='_blank' /> so that it become

<base target='_blank' />

Save the edited template and viola, all links in your blog will now open in new tabs or windows.

Note 1: Blogger is now XHTML so all tags must have matching closing tags or be self closing. The above tag is self closing because it has that forward slash / at the end of the tag.

Note 2: This will cause all links including links to your own website to open in new windows. If you don't want this, then don't use this method.

Update: A commentator asked for all links to opens in a new window/tab, but then when other links are clicked, rather than opening another separate new window/tab, it replaces the one that was previously opened. So they can stay on my page while new links all appear in the same new window, not multiple new tabs/windows. This can be easily done by using <base target="_new"> instead so that it becomes
<base target='_new' />

Note 2: Just wondering if adding a note for frequent visitors to set browser to open in new tabs rather than new windows will reduce the number of visitors having an unmanageable numbers of new windows opened. Do leave your opinions in the comments below:

Note 3: Some bloggers may prefer some links not to open in new window/tab but to open in the same window, Nute gave this tip to add the attribute target="_self" for those links you want to open in the same window/tab.
