link won't open in new window

  1. when i compose a new post that includes a link, the link won't open in a new window. how can i enable a link to open in a new window? ty

  2. in the html for the link before the closing /> put in target="_blank".

    That will force the link to open in a new window.

    I should mention that it's considered bad form to do that, but I've never figured out why!


  3. If you are using the Rich Editor to set your links, the second line gives you an option to open in the same window or in a new window. (I agree with you, Collin.)

  4. It's considered back form as 1) It's an accessability issue and 2) "If I want to open a new window, I'll do it myself. Don't you dare tell me I have to open a new window!" old farts like myself. :)

    I agree though. Links off of site I like to open in a new window.

  5. Thanks for the info Mike!

    Yep, I like opening links in a new window (or tab as I use Opera), but just holding the shift button and clicking the link will force a new tab. :)
