How make script to include a javascript on click outbound links?

Hi i have a forum and i am trying to include a javascript when a outbound link is clicked. Right now i have the javascript code run on the site for all links but this is annoying because i dont want it to run on the navigation links for my forum.

I am not a programmer but i do have some basic understanding of code. I just cannot figure it out how to make what i need.

So in a nutshell, i want to include the javascript ONLY when a outbound link is clicked and not on the forum navigation itself. It would also work for me if i can just exclude my own domain.

I really hope someone could help me with this and show me an example of code how to do this.

Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:
