Open Image In A New Window

  • I can’t make my image link open in a new window.
    I managed to do it with a normal text link by inserting the code target=”_blank”, but when I insert this code to my image link, it just disappears.
    This is the site:

    You’re in luck. I just saw the plugin Open Picture Window, nice one. Cheers.

    Thanks mercime.
    I actually came across this plugin, but it opens in a new small window (like a pop-up) which could be offensive to some people.
    Perhaps I should have made it clearer in my first post. What I need is for the link to open in a new tab (and for browsers that don’t support tab, a new window).

    Have just downloaded and attempted to instal this and I got the following message when I activate it:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/ribs4u/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ald-openimagewindow/quicktag.inc.php on line 5

    All i did was removed line five – it was a commented line s wasn’t actually needed – and it worked.
