Hi I am just wondering the quickest and easiest way for a link on my page to open up in a new tab. So I can link another site from mine, but not navigate away from my page.

Thanks in advance.

Hi shaunmcalpine,

The easiest way to do this would be to add the target="_blank" tag to your link's HTML. This effectively means that HTML for your link would look like this:

<a href="" target="_blank">Your Link</a>

Please remember not to use the <! -- and the --> tags. Their only purpose is to prevent the forum from rendering the HTML.

I hope this helps.
