Hi Antony,


You'd have to customize the carousel section using PHP code.


FTP into your site. Navigate to wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections and download the entire folder named carousel.


You'll have to edit the section.php file and carefully add target="_new" in the code in the appropriate place.  Do not upload the changes.


You'll then need to use the Base Theme. This is free via Dashboard > PageLines > Store > Themes. Install it, but do not activate it.


FTP into the site, this time navigating to wp-content/themes/pageslines-template-theme.  You may have to create a new folder there called sections (Do not capitalize it, or modify that name).  Open the new folder and upload the carousel folder you downloaded before. 


If you have a cache plugin activated, clear the plugin's cache. 


Close your browser.  Re open it.  Check the links. They should work, provided you did your PHP code correctly.
