Rich Text Editor adds extra text (rel="noopener noreferrer")

  • Symptoms can be different for some Sitecore versions, but the common problem is appearing of rel="noopener noreferrer" text snippets after adding hyperlinks to be opened in New Window (target_blank).

    • For Sitecore XP 8.2 Update-6 + :
      Rich Text Editor duplicates the rel="noopener noreferrer" attribute in the <a> tag. For example:
       <a rel="noopener noreferrer" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="/Services/Tracking/TrackEvent?ev=TrTpQoy207eEbjM%2bB67P1EKhMBBoOq2U16E6ElIgMeTEWXt9f8S0O9X9RdiYu968UCJpLCiY0X48455wlvsE4ofrwttbKeUU8ankr3NSm9GSIiQvjgITOyz56iNpI%2bua" 
      target="_blank"> Sitecore </a>
    • For Sitecore XP 8.2 Update-4 and Sitecore XP 8.2 Update-5 :
      rel="noopener noreferrer" snippets appear at random places in the text outside the <a> tag. The problem appears when trying to add several hyperlinks.
