Hi any idea how I can stop when a customer clicks an external link on my site moving off my web page but make it open a new page. It happens with both Chrome & IE. I have used other web sites and it opens a new page keeping their one open but now on mine. Sure it is an easy answer. Many thanks Henry

Hello Henry

We have added this feature to the Link Editor as well when you create text and picture links. When you add a link, the Link Editor dialogue box will give you a checkbox option at the bottom, saying "Open in new window". If you check that box, your link should be opened in a new window or tab (depending on the user's browser settings).

For detailed instructions on how to create links please see our tutorial Creating links.
