Hi Panagiotis,

You can definitely do this with a little bit of HTML.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Create a new page with the name of the site you want to link to.
2. Drag and drop a HTML Widget onto your page.
3. Paste this tag into the HTML Editor:
<<!!--meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=http://webdesign.about.com"-->

Please note:
* "2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects and you can change this. Since the page will redirect in your Sitebuilder, please use a number that will allow you enough time to make changes on your page if needed.

* please replace URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.

Hello, i think i didnt explain myself properly and i ll try again. On my Yola website there is the menu with the options/pages. So..... i would like one particular page of my website to be opened in a different tab when somebody clicks on it. It is like when you click on a link and the command ''target blank'' opens the link on a different tab? Same i want to do but instead of my viewers clicking on link i would like them just to click the option of menu. Is this makes sense now ? Please below the image attached. the option highlighted is the one i one to click on and open the page in different tab.

Hi Panagiotis,

From what it sounds like, you would like one of your menu options to open in a new tab when the user clicks on it - as opposed to them right-clicking and selecting "Open in new tab".

Something like this may be possible using CSS. I have referred this to the HTML team and they will get back to you as soon as possible (within the next 48 hours) with feedback.

Hi Justine, this is exactly what i mean instead of doing right click and open on different tab just to click and open on a new tab. many thanks for looking into it for me. :)

Hello Sanja,
i appreciate you look into it for me.

it does work at certain extent. if you have a look to the above printsceen you ll se that an unwanted space is created between the second and third tab. Also the hover text work only if you click on the tab. bare in mind that at step 3 i couldnt fit the whole link http://4livesports.com/live-scores.ph... due to space restrictions and i kept it short as http://4livesports.com/live-scores

Can you please look into it and advise me ?

Many thanks

Hello Pangiotis,

Do you mind if we can keep this conversation to the email - I just don't want to lose track flipping back and forth! I'll send you an email tomorrow to follow up with this as I need to take a closer look at the issue you're describing.
