I am using the Newscast Advertising widget that came with the theme. Now, when someone clicks the add, it opens in the same page. Is there any way to have it open in a blank page (target=”_blank”)? Having it open in the same page as my blog, is not a great way of keeping visitors on my blog:-).November 1, 2010 at 4:26 pm #36612
Have a look at this thread: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/how-to-open-all-external-links-in-new-windowsNovember 1, 2010 at 4:49 pm #36613November 1, 2010 at 4:56 pm #36614November 1, 2010 at 4:59 pm #36615
It seems to me that this is a way to complicated solution.
Maybe I am misunderstanding what you are saying:-).
I would think it would be far easier to add the target=”_blank” option to the advertising_widget.php. I am however not sure how to get it done. i tried several things but it didn’t work.November 1, 2010 at 5:07 pm #36616November 1, 2010 at 5:24 pm #36617
I had a look at it and after adding the folder name where my blog resides it works on the add widget:-). However should I add a / at the end of that particular string or not?
it seems to work with and without the end slash /November 1, 2010 at 5:26 pm #36618November 1, 2010 at 5:33 pm #36619
I tried that but then it doesn’t seem to work in Firefox. It does work in Internet Explorer. When I don’t use the directory it needs a / to have it work in IE, FF, Opera and Chrome.
When adding a / is a big no no:-). I will need to add the directory to have it work in all browsers.November 1, 2010 at 5:38 pm #36620November 1, 2010 at 5:46 pm #36621
Well isn’t that weird. Why would it work for you and not for me?
Man browsers can be suchs a pain in the $#@. Will there ever be a moment when they all can work with the same code? Hope so because this is just getting ridiculous:-).
I will go for just the domainname and ending it with a slash (/).
Thanks for the help!
It’s highly appreciated.
