I need a plugin that allows me to use RPG maker to go to specific sites online.

I'm aware of YEP External Links. While the plugin is good, and it loads discord invite webpages, it doesn't load twitter or other sites. I've tried running this plugin on its own and with other plugins and it has the same issue. White screen with nothing on it, no errors. I'm running on the OG version of RPG maker MV. (Although the issue was the same when I tried with newer versions).

I'm aware also of the script: document.location = "http://google.com";

This loads google just fine and select other webpages, but again does not load websites like other sites and twitter and other social media. I've made sure I'm linking to public pages and not private ones

Any help would be appreciated and willing to commision on seeing it work with these websites.

It might be a tiny bit different I think of social media buttons (on the title screen).
but it can also be done through eventing if not for the main menu.

where exacly do you want to use it? title, main menu, through an npc with links to sites?

else you can easely use a scriptcall like:

Open URL with default browser (Windows Or Mac Only)
require('nw.gui').Shell.openExternal('https://web-adress/nwjs/nw.js');

I already have a plugin that allows the title screen to be bypassed, which means you load into a map on the opening of the game, which means you can pretty much design the title screen however you please without limits. So at the minute the social medias are done through choice commands like you'd expect, I'll try out this script call you put in now

Update: @ShadowDragon
You're a godsend. Works perfectly.

This post needs putting up in the google results for external links.There's no info out there for non-savvy scripters like myself.
