If you add a link to another website, you might prefer that it opens a new page rather than taking the user away from your own website. Here is how to do this:
Firstly you’ll need to create the blog post or update your CMS page:
- Log into Webdadi
- Click on Configuration from the blue menu on the left.
- From the dropdown beside Manage, select News.
- Create or update the blog post you are working on. For instructions on how to create a blog, click here.
- Add the appropriate tags for the article you are writing by adding them in Keyword.
- Make sure you’ve ticked Visible at the bottom so the article will display.
- Select Ok.
- Now double click on the article to open it again.
- Within the bulk of the copy, in Description you need to click on the words you wish to hyperlink. Highlight them and select URL.
- Paste the URL in for the page you wish to direct your audience to.
- Click Ok to save that URL
change, then click Ok to save this again.
- Now you need to code this hyperlink so it will open in a new window of Chrome or IE by adding additional code.
- Open the article (blog post) again by double clicking on the article/news item.
- Then select Edit Source
- Find the URL link within Edit Source. Remember, you are now looking at the coding for your post so you will see various <P> and other HTML coding symbols.
- Find the URL you added and type target="_blank" at the end of the URL.
- Select Ok to save again.
