This is bad for entries to be put into the main navigation, as that leaves the current site unexpectedly.

Either add a setting to the redirector page that can be used to control the behaviour (litte more work, create DataExtension for the RedirectorPage in php)
or just make Redirector pages that link to other sites (i.e.have the RedirectionType = External) open in a new window unconditionally (statement in the template)

A part of the code needed in this task can be found at I believe an edit to the template is also needed to support this.

Cloph: Jean has been asking

Any progress on the pushing of these changes from to the official site?

Can you let us know if that is on your pile?
The ticket priority is low, but I'd like to know if there is anything blocking. :-)

Important to me is that any solution we deploy is update-proof and doesn't require lots of patching and manual work with each update, so we have to weight the benefits.
