How to Make Article in the Article List Module Open in a Different Tab

Hi there,

I wrote an article on T-shirts from Zazzle and two of the tees I'm showing have the Gone Squachin message. Now, I would like to do an Article List module and show some articles on Sasquatch from fellow Wizzleyans, but the problem with that is that I don't find a way to make the articles open in a different tab. I don't want people to leave my page, so how do I do that?

I believe that's only accessible if you use HTML and I don't think that's available to us. New tab. Same tab. Playing around seems that for commenting at least it automatically adds the needed code in.

<a href="http://www.google.com">*link*</a> would open the link in the same tab whereas adding target="_blank" should allow it to open in a new tab.

Thank you, Paul. Well, then I'll write it in a text module and add target="_blank" there. Will also include a few sentences from their subtitle, to get it as close as the article list module.

Not a problem! Just to confirm, it should be written as <a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank">*text*</a> should make the link open in a new tab. :)

Hey there, sorry, but "target" on links inside the text module won't work either: we keep things consistent on Wizzley: all *external* links open in a new tab, all internal links open in the same tab. The target attribute is therefore set automatically in all modules.
