Modifying links in posts

    I just got started (today, in fact - came over from Blogger) and I had a question concerning links within posts. I know WP has an 'automatic' link-creating button, but I tried modifying the link so that it would open the link in a new tab without having to do a CTRL-mouseclick.

    This is the html I used: LinkTitle. When I hit 'Publish', the Edit screen shows me the link was changed to Linktitle, and the link is completely gone. If I DON'T add the 'target="_blank" part, the link holds and works on my page.

    Doesn't WP support that kind of html?

    The blog I need help with is theobservatorium.wordpress.com.

  2. Try checking the the box that says "open in a new tab or window" when you create a link.

    The support documents are your friend.

  3. As you have imported content from Blogger please enable this > Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    Aux - thanks; that little 'open in new tab' box works wonders.

  5. And much easier than the html target blanks stuff

    You be welcome & good luck

    Blogger runs on deprecated code. Please be sure you do what I said here. > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/modifying-links-in-posts?replies=5#post-613282
