Is it possible to set up a link so that it opens a new window, rather than taking the person out of my site? I can do this with my Squarespace blog.
There used to be then the option was removed. However I believe you can manually add the code - but I don't know how so hopefully someone else will pop by and explain!
This hub by Sinea Pies explains how to do it manually. I'm afraid I am simply hopeless when it comes to coding and don't have the frame of mind to attempt it, but hope it will help everyone else. Maybe one of these days I will try to figure it out, Right now I'm so frustrated with trying to put a sign-up referral link on my profile page that I'm going to worry about trying this some other day.

Before, when I placed a link within a text capsule, I had an option of specifying whether the link would open in the same window causing the reader to leave the hub, or in a new window. This possibility seems to have vanished. What is more, the default is for the link to open in the same window,...

I have several hubs on related topics and I have links to each on my hubs. When I create a new hub, I have to go back in to each related hub and manually add the link.I do categorize the hubs under the same "group", but the navigation just doesn't seem to be as intuitive IMO.Is...

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...
