External Links Opening in New AND Current Tab/Window (5 posts)

    For some reason external links on my site that are tagged to open in a new window/tab are opening in BOTH a new window, AND in the current one. I'm using the target= "_blank" attribute. I've seen this problem discussed on the drupal support forum, but not here. Can anyone help me fix this issue pretty please?

    Thanks,
    NR

    _blank Opens the linked document in a new window or tab
    _self Opens the linked document in the same frame as it was clicked (this is default)

    Hi IMI,

    Yes that is understood, however the problem I am having is that _blank is performing both actions: it is opening the link in a new window AND the same window at the same time. Any ideas why it is behaving this way?

    Thanks.

    Nothing checked. This also happens when I embed the link directly, such as under a banner on my sidebar :(
