Support » Fixing WordPress » links won't open in separate window
3 years, 11 months ago
I click the check box to open links in separate window / tab, but when I test, it goes away from my page and opens in the same tab I’m in. I lose the potential client and don’t want that! Help!

Have you tried changing theme? Try switching to Twenty Twelve and then insert a link to open a new window.
If that works, then your theme is overwriting that function.
Could you explain why opening links in a new window is a bad idea? I don’t understand why that is.
The topic of opening links in a new window has been debated Ad nauseam. Some people think it’s great, others don’t. I’m in the camp that thinks that your visitors can’t be forced to stay on any site.
