Hi, okay, first, type the link you want in the text widget. Then, if you want it to open in another window, follow these steps:

1. Highlight the text you want to be a link.

2. In the Text editing bar, click "Link" with the little link icon next to it.

3. Now, it will have a box pop up and select what you want.

4. Then, click Ok.

5. Now, on the same text box, click the last blue icon on the text editing bar. It says HTML.

6. Once you are in the code, find the link in the code. It will be after "<a href="URL">"

7. Once you found it, right after the URL and the quotation mark , put target="_blank"

So it should look like this:

<a href="URL" target="_blank">LINK TEXT</a>

8. Now, click the blue "OK" and it will disappear and it should now work! Preview the page and then click that link and it should work and it should pop up in a new window!

Hope this helps!

If you need any more help please let me know

Remember "URL" and "LINK TEXT" are going to be what you put in.
