Handling Links

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 16 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

This is some code that I cooked up for handling links in my website. I was tired of prefacing every link with “”. This takes care of that and ensures that it will open in a new window. Easy as pie. I’m sure there is probably a better way to do it, but this is the way I figured out how to do it.

function redirect ($url)
$url = preg_replace(“#Note: This was code that I originally had in a ‘Code’ page, but I’m moving it to a post now. This code is probably really old (years and years old). I enjoy laughing at myself and so should you.
