I have no idea why I had to try so many things and could only find ways to make each specific link open in a new window, but if you want all outgoing links to open in a new window, it's pathetically easy.
And there you have it, once you click save all your outgoing links should now open in a new window so you aren't sending your visitors away.
If you find this easy tutorial useful, feel free to spread the word, we'd really appreciate it. Knowing we helped someone avoid the headaches and hassles really brightens our day. :-)
