How to open links in new window (6 posts)

    Hi there,

    I use the WP app on my iPad to do most of my blog. When I add links to my posts, I am not given the option to open them in a new window,. Is there something I can do to set this to default so all external links open in a new window?

    Thanks
    Caitlyn.

    My version is 3.6.3

    Try adding "_target=blank" at the end of the a link and see if it helps.

    I am honestly not sure if you can set this to be a default option, but I would imagine not.

    The best way to get what you want IMO is using HTML code. You could just go this like

    <a href="URL HERE" target="new">Link Text</a>

    Thanks for your help! Can I download that plugin for use on my iPad via the iOS app?

    Don't know as I haven't tried that. You may try, as logically that should work.
