External URL Notification Popup

Home Elementor External URL Notification Popup

September 29, 2022

In this tutorial I will show you a free and easy way to have a browser popup notification when a user clicks on an external link on your website.

I will be using Elementor Pro to pull off this effect, but since it’s just simple JavaScript you can use this code on any website.

JavaScript Code:

    $('a').on('click', function() {
   if ( this.host !== window.location.host ) {
      var thisHrefHere = this.href;
      if ( window.confirm('Warning! You are now leaving this website. You clicked on the external URL: '+thisHrefHere+'') ) {        
      }else {         
         return false;
