well, u can add base target to _blank since its a popup page… 🙂
I think Matt was saying this is already the way it works… what version are you using that it isn’t working this way?
Well, one idea. In your subject title you have no quotes. The format should have quotes, like this: target=”_blank”.
I don’t know if that’s the problem, but if you don’t have quotes, add them as shown and see if it works.
Either use the base target as Susubh suggested or display your comments inline. I recommend the latter. ‘target=”_blank”‘ is deprecated in recent versions of XHTML and a lot of people here REALLY don’t like it.
He doesn’t want his comments to popup in a new window, he wants commenter’s websites to pop up in a new window… (ie the link for a person’s name in the comment they left opens in a new window). Despite Matt’s claims to the contrary, it DOESN’T currently work that way, at least not in the Miles release, and not when your comments are inline…
I thought the problem was that he doesn’t like the links opening inside the pop-up window because it makes a lot of sites hard to read. If you switch to inline comments you don’t need to open a new window because the window is already full-size.
I always got the impression that the reason links in pop-up windows open inside the same window is because ‘target=”_blank”‘ is deprecated and including it would go against the whole philosophy of WordPress. We’ve already had the debate about why opening new windows is wrong. I’m not even sure why pop-up comments are supported.
but when i switch to inline comments, i cant get it to use my template. i have tried including the header and footer from my site and that just makes it include it twice on my main blog page. i have tried putting the pure html code in but that does the same and displays it on the normal blog page.Anonymous
its ok now, i uninstalled it and reinstalled it in my root directory, its much easier 😛
Tiptoe, through the holy war…
if (window.opener). Someone who control-clicked the popup into a new tab gets to manage their own links, someone who has a little popup window doesn’t have to figure out how to open links somewhere else that’s big enough to read in.
Personally, I would rather have comments/trackbacks open in a new window. And dare I say, comments and so forth opening in a new window is pretty much standard for blogware.
just add that 😉
