Hi JohnPaul,

Here is a alternative way to open links in a new window, you can try these steps if you wish to:

1. Add text using the text widget
2. Select the text that you want the link and then click "insert link" on the text editing toolbar
3. Create your link to your chosen URL as normal, click ok
4. Then click "HTML" - the last icon on the text editing toolbar
5. You will see the code that looks like this for your link (I have used the text "Visit Wikipedia to see more information", with the link being on Wikipedia:
<!-- Visit <a href="http://www.wikipedia.org">Wikipedia&l...> to see more information<br>
All you need to do is add in target="blank" as show below:
Visit <a href="http://www.wikipedia.org" target="blank">Wikipedia</a> to see more information<br> -->

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

Please note: current thinking in web usability circles is that links that open in a new window are a bad idea for a number of reasons. See: Beware of http://www.sitepoint.com/article/bewa..., for a great article by a leading expert in the field.
