How to have a Link open in a New Window


If you are using WordPressor most WYSIWYG editors (What You See Is What You Get) it’s easy. Here are the steps:

  • First, include your set of words you want to link:–>> This is where we will place our link
  • Next, click in front of the first letter and drag the mouse while holding the click button to the end of the sentence.
  • While words are highlighted, click the small link icon above the post  
  • In the new box that appears, you can paste the link directly in or you can start to type in your keywords to look for a page or post you have already created.   
  • Open the wheel to the right to expand the box options. Check the box that says open in a new window.

If you don’t have WordPress, you can add some basic html code to the “target=_blank” right after the URL to which you are linking.

<a href=”” target=”_blank”></a>
