Linking external url to open in a New window1 user found helpful
I am confused about one thing. Im trying to link a url to and external page. easy enough.
BUT WHY CANT IT OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW.
Its driving me crazy! Any help please.
There is a bug in 5.7.2 with the encoding of those external links, which we have fixed in 188.8.131.52 (which will be released soon.) in the meantime you can fix that by linking to //yoursite.com instead ofhttp://yoursite.com.
Im so sorrry but I have no Idea where to start with that response.
So heres what ive tried.
1 The url does work, but it exits my site to go to the linked page/ Site in the same tab
2 I have tried all the connotations including trying light box option. they dont work.
Strangely enough it does seem to work when editing an image.
How would i action your suggestion.
I am sorry to see it is not provided in the 5.7.3 version. My clients really don't understand the adding target=blank because technical things are arabic for them.
Do you know when it's done within an update?
$('#link a').attr('target', '_blank');
Of course change #link to whatever div it's in. Hope this helps someone
Version 5.7.4 is very close.
But I agree - not having the option to open links in new windows is quite frustrating.
Thanks man. I will look into creating a custom template when I get some time. I am still learning a lot. I want to create a them from the ground up with easy to style navigation and all the bells and whistles I need to make this take less of my time. I will let you know when I get a template together and send it to you.
