How to place links on a page. (3 posts)

    When I want to place a link on a page and link it to a certain domain (url) and so that it opens in its own window, it doesn't work. I used the link tool by html and by visual both give the same results, no link appears on page.

    Thank You

    Add the following code into your post in HTML mode

    <a href="http://www.mydomain.com">New Window</a>

    Replace mydomain.com with where you want to point to and change the text New Window to something that explains about the link.

    You can select a piece of text and use the Insert/Edit Link button in visual mode to insert the URL and just below where you key in the URL is a tiny check box that says 'Open link in a new window/tab' check it.

    To have it open in a new page it's

    <a href="http://www.mydomain.com" target="_blank">New Window</a>

    Although, a lot of web users hate having this forced on them... If I want a link to open in a new tab/window, I right click and do the action myself. Just something to consider....
