  • There is a checkbox in the WordPress menu admin to do that (Open link in a new window/tab). If you are not using a WordPress menu, add target="_blank" to the link code, i.e.
    <a href="" title="My Link" target="_blank">My Link</a>

    How do I do this? I tried your suggestion Lori. My website is:



    To make a link open in a new window, follow the instructions above. If you are trying to get a menu item to open in a new window and you don’t see the ‘Open link in a new window/tab’ checkbox, click on the ‘Screen Options’ tab at the top of Menus admin page (next to the Help tab) and check the ‘Link Target’ box under ‘Advanced Menu Properties’.
