Making a link open in a new tab or window

    Hello everyone. I'm just wondering if there is a way to make a link in your hubs open in a new tab or window so that readers aren't taken away from your hub when they click on it. It's important to keep readers reading as long as possible, but we aren't helped when they are directed to another website or hub when they click on a link. Is there any way around this?

      Hi,
      I am sorry HP does not have such option, neither does it allow adding of custom HTML such as:

      <a href="http://hubURL" target="_blank">anchor text</a>

      So, we'll just make use of what is available for now.

      click on the html option in the capsule, then use target="_blank" in anchor tag

      eg: <a href="your link" target="_blank" > word here </a>

      smile

    Alternatively, insert the link into your text using MS Word and then copy and paste the text into your text capsule.

    People's browser settings will override any coding in the pages they are viewing so if the reader doesn't want to view something the way you want them to, it doesn't matter what you try and do.

    HP used to have an option to select "open in new tab/window" when setting up a link...but they took it away from us. Boo, hiss!

    I don't mess with html coding--it's too confusing for me, and too easy to mess up so nothing else works either, let alone your link.
