If all links on my site open in new tabs, will it affect analytics or SEO?

I’m working on a site where all links in the body of the pages open to a new tab. Generally I see external links open to a new tab but internal in the same tab. Wondering if this can still fall within a best practice.

Seems like it shouldn’t affect Analytics (new session), but wondering if there are SEO ramifications. Do you see higher bounce rates on sites that do this? If someone is opening multiple tabs, does looking at a user’s path through your site become muddied?

Could use some feedback on the pros/cons. Thanks!

Installing Fluent Forms + Formidable Forms in the same website, would it affect loadspeed significantly?

I have some functional needs that would only be satisfied by using both plugins at once (since neither of them has all functionalities I need, but just some/half of these functionalities). I am thinking about installing both plugins instead. I do not mind about incurring in extra costs or about how to integrate both (I am already covered regarding those two issues). What I am concerned about is page loadspeed…..

Do you think having both plugins (which do the same) at once would impact load speed significantly? Would you recommend me to install both given my situation? Would it be worth it?

Also, can pls someone explain me how would they impact load speed? (through adding more js and css, through ajax calls, etc?)

Thank you in advance !!!!

If I want to affect a creature with a concentration spell and it succeeds its save, do I notice my concentration failing? [duplicate]

I’m a fairly new DM, and I’ve run into a problem. One of my players tried to cast Modify Memory on a golem. Golems are immune to being charmed, but Modify Memory doesn’t say creatures immune to charm are unaffected. I decided to let the spell through because of narrative reasons. But, we had a discussion.

Modify Memory says:

On a failed save, the target becomes Charmed by you for the Duration.

The spell is a concentration spell for 1 minute. My question is the following: If I had not let the spell circumvent the golem’s immunity to charm, would the caster know that the spell didn’t affect the target, since it requires concentration, but there’s nothing to concentrate on?

How does Halfling Luck affect the probability of surviving my death saves?

The probability of a mere human surviving a series of unmodified death saving throws has been established as 59.5125%. But Halfling Luck applies to death saving throws in a dramatic way: A roll of 1 on a death save normally counts as two failures, but halflings are much less likely to suffer this result.

Previous work in the field of calculating the effects of Halfling Luck does not apply directly to death saving throws, because of this asymmetry between races concerning how terrible it is to roll a 1.

How much more likely is it that a halfling will survive a series of death saving throws as opposed to one of those poor unfortunate nonhalflings?

Can the spell Catnap affect elves?

Elves cannot be magically put to sleep, according to their Fey Ancestry trait.

The catnap spell (Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, p. 151) can make up to three willing creatures fall unconscious (and get the benefit of a short rest after the 10-minute duration).

Can elves be affected by the catnap spell?

How does attacking downwards affect ranged weapon attacks?

For 5e, ranged weapon attacks are associated with a normal range and a long range distance. For a flying attacker, how does attacking downwards affect that range?

Say a flying PC with a handaxe was flying 150 feet above an enemy. Can they throw their weapon down to hit it? It’s outside both the handaxe’s standard and long range, but the handaxe has nowhere to go but down.

Does it automatically miss? Does it become an improvised weapon?

Does a Ring of Mind Shielding affect the dream spell? [duplicate]

The party warlock recently acquired a ring of mind shielding in Tales from the Yawning Portal

The party patron is a spellcaster who is in a city distant from them. She is about to contact them via the spell Dream for an update on their progress in resolving the mission she has set them upon, and does not know about the ring. She wants a much longer conversation than sending would allow, but has not used dream before to contact them and they do not know that she is planning to do so.

Dream is a 5th level illusion spell, and will allow her to contact the party as follows:

If the target is asleep, the messenger appears in the target’s dreams and can converse with the target as long as it remains asleep, through the duration of the spell.

Note that the contact is automatic and there is no saving throw, so long as she does not use the spell to attack the target with a nightmare.

The ring says that

Creatures can telepathically communicate with you only if you allow it.

Will the ring protect against the automatic contact from the spell?

If the warlock can use the ring to decide whether or not to ‘receive the call’ while he sleeps, will he know who the sender is, or who the sender is purporting to be, before he makes this decision?

For me, the answer hinges on how I should understand "telepathically" in this description, as the natural English meaning of ‘communicating feeling at a distance’ which could include the Dream spell, or as a specific term that applies only to abilities specifically using the word telepathy, such as various feats, spells, and creature languages. Thus, an answer able to clarify this would be particularly helpful to me. However, any answer that resolves the question is welcome.
