Links that open in new tabs or window

It is possible to have a text or picture link open in a new window, and we've made it easy to do so using our Link Editor.

Here are the steps for setting up a text link:
  1. In the Text Widget, type in the text that you want people to click on (this is your link text).
  2. Highlight the link text, and then click on the Link button (it looks like a chain link) on the Text Editing Toolbar.
  3. The "Choose a Link" dialog box will open and you will be given four options: You can link to a page on your site; an external URL; an email address; or a file stored in your File Manager.
  4. Remember to type your link like this: http://www.yourlink.com, else it won't be clickable.
  5. Once you have selected the type of link you'd like to use, you can select "Open in new window".
  6. Click "OK" to save.
  7. To check that your link is working, preview your page and click on the link.

Here are the steps for setting up a picture link:

  1. Add a picture using the Text Widget.
  2. On the Text Editing Toolbar, click on the "Picture" icon and select your picture.
  3. Click on the picture (a red outline will come up) and then click on the "Link" button (it looks like a chain link) on the Text Editing Toolbar.
  4. The "Choose a Link" dialog box will open and you will be given four options: You can link to a page on your site; an external URL; an email address; or a file stored in your File Manager.
  5. Remember to type your link like this: http://www.yourlink.com, else it won't be clickable.
  6. Once you have selected the type of link you'd like to use, you can select "Open in new window".
  7. Click "OK" to save.
  8. To check that your link is working, preview your page and click on the link.

Your picture link will then open in a new tab or window, depending on the browser your visitor is using.
