[resolved] Link to information source (7 posts)

    In my posts, I frequently summarize news items from on-line newswpapers. I want to link my summary to the article being summarized. I have seen other blogs where if the reader clicks on the text of the summary, a window opens with the source article. How do I do this? Is there a plug-in?

    TomH,

    Please provide a sample of what you're asking. A link to one of these other sites will be fine and indicate where we should click to see this action.

    When you type a post, at the end you can click the Link icon in the editor. The button of a small chainlink. You can then make text and url and tell it to open in a new window.

    If you need a special popup window post an example if you have one.

    Then click the link icon to insert a link and choose Open in new window. If a link already exist in a post you can just click the cursor onto it in the editor then click the link icon to edit it to Open in new window.
