Append target="_blank" with JavaScript for Silverstripe

An extension to automatically add JavaScript on all pages to add target="_blank" to all outgoing links, as well as "download links" such as PDF, ZIP, TAR, DOC, PPT and Excel files.

For security, it also adds rel="[noopener] to the outbound links to prevent cross-site exploit (see here).


  • Silverstripe ^4 || ^5

For Silverstripe 3, please refer to the Silverstripe3 branch.


Installation can be done either by composer or by manually downloading a release.

Via composer

composer require axllent/silverstripe-links-to-blank


By default the module will automatically include some compressed inline JavaScript into your page. If you prefer to include this as a separate JavaScript asset instead then you can define this in a yaml config (eg: app/_config/config.yml):

  inline: false
