set the "target" of the links in custom menu
My suggestion would be to put, into the custom menus admin area, a "target" field to the links. It would be very useful for external links, for example, can change the target to "_blank" without hacks.
(PS: I don't know to which category this idea applies, so, I selected "general")
There already is a target field in Appearance/Menu :-)
If it doesn't show for you, open Screen options and tick Link Target. The target options then show if you open the menu item with the down arrow.
blitz999 - Thanks for this info. I have been fooling with this for the last two hours and your post from two years ago solved me problem in 20 seconds. Many thanks.
@blitz999, thx for the perfect explanation
Unfortunately, this doesn't work for me. I selected the "link target" box under "screen options", but I don't get to select or change the target when adding a custom link.
I use the "King News" theme.
Anyone got any ideas ?
Thank you very much,
