About Blank-How to get a Link to Open Another Tab
This may be a little advanced for some people, but if you’ve ever wondered how to get a link to open another window instead of leaving the existing page I’ll lay it out for you in this article. I really like to use this in my links because whoever clicks on my links will have two of my windows open instead of just one.
Personally when I’m surfing the net I like to click links that open another tab because if I missed something on the first site it’s easier for me to get back to what I was originally looking at. One thing I hate is being on a website with a bunch of cool stuff clicking on something and then seeing something even cooler right when the link takes me to another obscure page that has no relevance to what I’m looking for or the link simply doesn’t work and it takes me to an Oops! Sorry we can find that page message.
O.K. so let’s get into the hard core jedi ninja moves. Really, it’s not that hard. All you need to do is add this to the end of your website URL (link) target = “_blank” . I don’t think it will work unless you get out the HTML nun chucks and go all out but here’s a full example of what that should look like.
EXAMPLE: <a target=”_new” href=”your website URL (link) here” target = “_blank”>your word here</a>
Alright, as I’m looking at this it does look a bit complicated but don’t be afraid, all you’re really doing is wrapping your link in a cozy HTML sandwich. Just put your link where it says “your website URL here (with the quotations around it)” and put a cool word or phrase where it says >your word here (with the alligator mouths around it)<, forget about the rest of it. As a side note you should put the HTML code in your post using the HTML tab or click on the source tab. If your not sure how to do that just look for the tab that makes your post look like it’s written in Klingon and paste it in there.
I would like to mention that some sites will automatically make your links open up in another tab. In these situations you don’t have to get technical with the HTML code you just have to hit the link button and enter the URL or web address. From what I’ve discovered you will have to use the HTML code when you’re posting on a blog or website that has wordpress installed on it. I’m not a big tech geek and I don’t clam to know everything about the internet, this is just what I’ve found out so far. Feel free to comment if you are an expert in this area and give us all a little skooln’.
Well here’s the real test, I’ll use a super top secret ultra-cool government approved sniper tested link and you can check it out for yourself. Jedi Ninja Secrets.
