    It is very lovely that links added to the portfolio meta boxes automatically become hyper links. How do I make it so that these links target to a blank new window?

    links like the ones seen here: http://therealmofpossibility.org/profiles/brittanyseymour-oralhealth/

    Thanks! and thank you for all of your previous help.

    You all are great!

    Hey InterdisciplinaryInnovation!

    Instead of just adding in the raw text for a link, you can add in the html version of the link with target=”_blank” to make it open in a new window.

    Eg:
    <a href="http://google.com" target="_blank">www.google.com</a>

    Regards,
    Devin

    Hi Devin,

    I will be having non-technical people (journalists and students) entering information into my site. Can you please let me know where in the code I have to go to find where the theme generates the link in the meta boxes? I need to hard code this in, not write out html thousands of times in the future.

    Thank you

    Hey!

    It is pretty normal for any browser to render a link as a hyperlink. What you’re asking may require a bit of a customization. Please hire a freelance developer if you don’t want to html codes on meta boxes.

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    Thank you.

    I didn’t realize that this was a wordpress norm, and not a feature of the meta-boxes. I searched for a plugin which does this.

    Thanks
