This is probably one of my fav. button plugins. And having the zip file under 20kb, means that the stress on the server – even for shared hosting, will be negligible. That said, I rated it 4 out of 5 stars because no matter what you choose the URL target to be, it always opts to be _blank. If you edit the dialog.php file and remove the _blank string, then you lose the ability to open the link in a new tab. The way to correct this is to actually edit the html (Text mode), and remove the _blank string manually from the code it generates. If this is fixed, it really deserves the full 5 stars. BTW, I deactivated all installed plugins, and changed the theme to Twenty-Fourteen, just to make sure a plugin or my custom handmade theme was not interfering in any way, but the issue was still there, that’s how I concluded that this plugin has this small bug. Other than that, thank you, and excellent job !!! Update (March 8, 2016): You promised a bug fix for today, and delivered, and therefore I’m obligated to upgrade my rating to 5 stars. I wish I could give it 10 stars! I can’t thank you enough!
