widgets to open in new window.

  1. How do i set up my image widgets such as my facebook button to open in a new tab/window?

    The blog I need help with is lusciouslifestudios.com.

  2. If you are 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:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/#visual-editor-links

    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>

  3. P.S. The reason I answered as I did above is that there is not option provided in the image widget to do that > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/image-widget/

  5. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog.
