I just started building my site and have a page called "articles" which links to word documents. I'd like the visitor to be taken back to the articles page after viewing the document when they click "x" to exit. How do I do that? I read a related answer posted 6 months ago, but did not understand it.

FYI, my site is www.beautifullypure.com and it's under "articles" tab.

Please help!

Thank you,
Heidi

To make a link open in a new window / tab, and leave your site where it is:

1.Make your link.

2.Open the html for it.

3.Add:

target="_blank"

exactly as shown, after the HREF="site or link name" as shown below in the example.

<!--
<A HREF="http://www.copyscape.com/"target="_bl... SRC="http://banners.copyscape.com/images/c..."
-->

4.Leave out the <!-- and the --> at the beginning and end. (Those characters are so this site doesn't read the code)

There are a few ways to view the html to edit it, all depends how you made it...

-If it's an in-line text link, sweep to highlight the individual word or words, click the html icon in the top tool bar - (where you set the font, color, font size etc...)

-If it's a photo / graphic link from your file manager, and you placed the photo in a widget, and then made the link in synthasite, click the image itself, then click the html in the top tool bar

-if it's a photo / graphic that was downloaded and came with it's own code, click the image itself, click the properties tab in the right side tool bar, click edit html
