The embedded links I use will open up a web page -- in the same tab or window. This requires clicking "back" to return to the BPL page -- which can be annoying. Is there a different way of linking that will open up a different tab or window?

Go to Yahoo

Ben,

If you can look at the source you can see how this one was done. I grabbed this off another page.

If you include the attribute target="_blank" in the HTML anchor tag, it should do this...

Benjamin,

This is fairly simple in your link put target="_blank" and it should open up in a new window.

Something like this https://www.alpackaraft.com

Which looks like this a href="https://www.alpackaraft.com" target="_blank" https://www.alpackaraft.com /a

You know, plus all those carrots

Also for other peoples links on a windows machine, you can right click and click open in new window/tab.

For mac people Apple (command key) Click will open the link in a new window/tab.
