[resolved] Blogroll>Open in a new window? (10 posts)

    Hi.

    I'm setting up a blog and using a customized theme based on a theme called "Waterlily." I don't know if this is a thing specific to themes, or if it's a WordPress thing that you might help me with, but I would like to make it so the links in my blogroll open up in a new window instead of in the same.

    Can anyone tell me where I might find that or how to do it?

    Thanks,
    Caat

    On the Blogroll page of your Dashboard, when you add a new link there is "Target" option over to the right-hand side. Click the "+" to expand it and there are three options. The default is "none" but if you change it to "_blank" then that link will open in a new tab or window.

    As far as I can see you will have to alter this setting for each link; it does not appear to be something you can set globally for the whole Blogroll.
