Thanks Georgie but I cannot see the screen shot. Can you tell me where the "target" goes in the line does not bark very much ? It did not work after edit: it will not show my code in the question! does the word "target" come after the hub name? Thank
No, it will look just like this: a href="http://whateverthelinkis.com" target="_blank" and make sure the whole thing falls between this < and this >. The target part has to be typed exactly like I've done with the quotes around "_blank" or no w
I am doing exactly that but every time I save the capsule I get the message "warning=your html code will need to be cleaned up to proceed" and then my change is deleted, so it does not open on a new window! Frustrating.
I sent you an e-mail, I hope that clears it up. Sometimes the html error message will come up even if you haven't made changes. I think it could be some kind of bug.
Sorry to keep bothering you with this. I followed your instructions in the email but am still getting the error message. Some kind of bug? Do you think I should just try it again tomorrow?
Depends. Sometimes you will get the error message but it will still keep your changed. I just tried on one of my Hubs and it worked.
I tested it and when it said that it needed cleaned up I hit OK to see what happened. Place it between the . Place the "> at the end of your link.
Thanks I am doing the same thing as you told me yesterday and now it is working! Imagine that--a bug.
Thanks for all of your help!

Thanks for the suggestion. Last night it would not work, today it is okay using the target="_blank" I appreciate your taking the time to answer this for me!
Thanks, Examiner. I do not know that it helps much, but if any readers do choose to look at a link at least they do not lose the original hub right in the middle.
Is that why you went through all of that? I simply open the link in a new tab.
