Is there a way to make links target="_blank"?
Whenever you click on a link in your hub, the link opens on the same page itself.
Is there a way to insert the target="_blank" code to a link so that when clicked on it'll open in a new tab.
Yes, this can be done rather easily. In the "edit" mode for a text capsule, add a link to a section of text using the "link" option of the tool bar (looks like 2 links of a chain). Then, click on the "html" option, the far left option on the tool bar. This brings your text into html mode.
You can then find and modify your link so that the link opens in a different tab rather than the default option of leaving your Hub and opening in the same tab.
Here is how I added a link to "The Desert of Maine" in one of my Hubs:
(Note: there should be < and > before and after this, but if I put it in, you wouldn't see the html code that is important).
a href="http://www.desertofmaine.com/desert" target="_blank"
(See note above)
All I did was add target="_blank" between the < and > of the reference link.
Hope this helps.
Thanks alot Bankscottage,
Another quick question..Can it be done to the links capsule by any chance?
I haven't found a way to make that work. I have decreased my use of link capsules because of that. Just use a text capsule to make a list of links and you should be able to make a "custom links capsule" to suit your needed.

Is it possible to add a feature to links within text and to the photos to opt to have the link open in a new window? This would allow the reader to stay on the original page. Bounce rates rise every time someone leaves a page before reading the entire article, for whatever reason. If relevant links...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

If I add a link at the bottom of a hub and the title has an apostrophe 's', it comes out like this:Poem: A Stay-at-Home Mum's Quiet DayIs this how the readers see such titles? If so, what can I do so that it makes sense, please?

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...
