set the "target" of the links in custom menu

  1. José Carlos


    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.

    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,
