    I am preparing a product review site, where I am using TablePress to list all the products. I have inserted Images in some of the cells of the table which are hyperlinked to a different site. Now, whenever I am clicking on the images, the hyperlink is getting open on the same page.

    I want to have the link open in a new window. I tried many options but its not working.

    Below is the site for your reference:

    Can you please help!

    Thanks
    Manoj

    Hi,

    thanks for your question, and sorry for the trouble.

    For this, you could use the TablePress Extension from https://tablepress.org/extensions/automatic-url-conversion/ with its automatic_url_conversion_new_window=true parameter.
    The alternative is to manually add target="_blank" to the HTML code of the links.

    Note that forcing links to open in a new window is considered a bad practice for accessibility reasons and is discouraged on the web.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Thank you Tobias for the help!
    When I downloaded the Automatic URL conversion zip, I received the file “tablepress-automatic-url-conversion.php”.

    Can you let me know, where this file needs to be copied. I tried copying it in various locations including Tablepress folder, but it’s still not working.

    Thanks
    Manoj

    Hi,

    I suggest to not unzip the .zip file directly, but to upload that .zip file in the “Plugins” -> “Add new” -> “Upload” screen of WordPress. It will then be unzipped to the correct location on the server.

    Tobias

    Tobias you are Awesome!!

    I was now able to generate links into new window, also I was able to add nofollow to all the links in the table together.

    Cheers & Thanks again!
