[resolved] How to launch a "Pretty Link" in a new window (3 posts)

    Obviously is it quite easy in code to launch a new windows via the "target=new" flag.

    I would like to create a "pretty link" and have it launch in a new window.

    NOTE: using WordPress "links" it is also quite easy to configure this, so i am sure i must be overlooking something here.

    Thanks, raiford

    Pretty Link doesn't create the html for a link, just the url (except for keyword replacements in pro which does have an option to open those links in a new window) ... so its just up to you to add the target.

    For instance ... if you created this url in pretty link:

    http://example.com/beans

    Then in your website here's an example of how you'd embed that url in an html link that will open up in a new window:

    <a href="http://example.com/beans" target="_blank">Beans</a>

    Ok, i better understand it now. I think Pretty Link is a nice front end to the Url Rewriting (.htaccess / UrlRewriter etc.)

    I am also using it to redirect to a file for example I have my resume in pdf but want to make a "Pretty Link". like so.
