It is easy. On the menus screen, at the top of the screen, see Screen Options. Use the drop down and tick Link Target. Then the menu items will have an extra option that is Open Link in New Tab/Window.November 30, 2014 at 11:13 pm #50107Merry Makowski
Dee, thanks so much, that was waaaay easier than I ever hoped for. I was not even looking for such an option, 2 of the themes I used previously, never had that.
Gosh, I should ask you guys sooner…
It is absolutely great to be here in this forum, I am a happy camper tonight; tomorrow I will start designing my new blog and likely I will have more questions… But yep, these theme and addons and support, everything rocks!November 30, 2014 at 11:49 pm #50111TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Thanks for the help, Dee!
Thanks, Merry! Here if you need me 🙂December 1, 2014 at 7:05 am #50170Dee Broughton
You’re welcome, Merry. I assume that’s a WP feature rather than a theme feature. I hope you’ll let us see what you’re building. I love seeing what others are doing.December 1, 2014 at 12:05 pm #50352Merry Makowski
Hi Dee, nice to see part of your face here 🙂
You are of course right, I was not looking at the wrong place, and when I had my blog before, this feature was not yet available.July 16, 2015 at 7:39 am #121500Marko
Links to external domains on my website are not opened in a new tab. I’ve checked that the option has been activated in the editor menue. Do you have any idea?

Did you do this?
Appearance/Menus/Screen Options/Link Target
“Open link in a new window/tab” appears as an option on each link on the menu.July 16, 2015 at 11:59 pm #121706Marko
Hi Dee. Yes i’ve checked that Appearance > Menus > Screen Options > Link Target has been activated and checked that in each menue entry this option is enabled. I deleted the cache and reload the site, but the external links are be opened in the same window and not in a new one. Do you have any idea to fix it?July 17, 2015 at 3:19 am #121729Marko
Hi Dee. My problem are external links in pages/posts.July 17, 2015 at 4:42 am #121745Marko
SOLVED 😉 I has installed the WP Accessibilty Plugin and there was a option which remove the target for new windows and tabindex. This options must be deactivated.July 17, 2015 at 8:30 am #121811TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
