How do I open a new window for my sidebar link?

  1. I've figured out how to open a separate window for a link within a page (I found the box to check), but I haven't been able to do that for the sidebar link.

  2. I assume you are referring to using a text widget. The easiest approach is to create a draft post and set it up the way you want ie.with links that open in a new window. Then you can copy and paste the code from the Text editor in the draft post into the text widget and delete the draft post.

    See:

    In the TEXT (html) editor (as well as in text widgets), instead of this:
    <a href="URL HERE">TEXT HERE</a>
    you write this:
    <a href="URL HERE" target="_blank">TEXT HERE</a>
