    I’m experiencing an issue with the Announcer plugin on my WordPress site. The plugin has an option for links to ‘Open in the same window,’ but despite selecting this option, all links are still opening in a new tab.

    Here’s a bit more detail:
    WordPress version: 6.4
    Announcer plugin version: 6

    Steps I’ve already taken:

    1. Double-checked the plugin settings to ensure ‘Open in the same window’ is selected.
    2. Cleared my browser cache and tried multiple browsers.
    3. Deactivated other plugins to rule out any conflicts.

    Despite these efforts, the problem continues. Has anyone else encountered this issue or have any suggestions on how to resolve it? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jeffrey,

    Just saw your website. There is some javascript on your site which is opening all links in new tab.

    Please find that code and make changes as required.

    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
        $('a').each(function() {
            var a = new RegExp('/' + + '/');
            if (!a.test(this.href)) {
                $(this).click(function(event) {
                    var f_class = $(this).attr('class');
                    if (f_class == 'xoo-el-lostpw-tgr' || f_class == 'xoo-el-login-tgr') {
                        return true;
                    } else {
              , '_blank'); <--- this line is opening in new tab
