I created several slideshows (created from slideshow pro, uploaded outside of wordpress) which can be found under "Photography" at

Can someone help me figure out how to have each of these slideshows open in a new window. Thanks.

Go to your custom menu. Put in a "custom menu item" and have the title be like this (html and all):

Thanks Jimmy. I put that bit into the "URL" section of the menu item, and when I click on "David and Martha" a new window opens, but I get this message: Firefox can't find the server at atarget=_blankhref=.

I'm an idiot. I put it in "title" instead and it works! Thanks for your help!

So I tried doing this for the other slideshows, but I can't get any of them to open in a new window. I put this in the "title attribute" for each respective menu item: `code`a href="/galleries/gallery/">Gallery</a`code` `code`a href="/galleries/adam_and_terra/">Adam and Terra</a`code` `code`a href="/galleries/andrew_and_kathryn/">Andrew and Kathryn</a`code`

I've been having a lot of trouble with this one. It was so strange, I would put that code in the "title attribute" (wouldn't work), then moved to the URL (wouldn't work) then moved back to the "title attribute" and it worked. I looked into this on some other wordpress forums and came across the "screen options" at top of menu page, checked "link target" option, and then selected for it to open in new window. That worked and I have no issues anymore.

Your method is the easiest and best (I was not aware slideshow pro had that window option).
