Open box in new tab

Recommended Posts

I've seen many topics with this question but I wasn't able to find a solution. I saw this post but didn't see a solution: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/17618/how-to-link-boxes-to-new-tab/p1 Basically, I need a few boxes to open in a new tab, but not every box. I am using PlatformBase. Thanks for your help. Here is my site: http://dev.leportschools.com/

Since you already having PlatformBase installed, you can make a copy of the box templates file (from PlatformPro) and paste it into the PlatformBase folder. That way, the file can be edited so that links can open in a new tab. However, if you're going to need only a few boxes to open in new tabs, I'm not sure how that can be achieved. I'll leave this open so that someone else with more insight about this can offer any solution.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

So if I wanted to go your route and open every box in a new tab, how would I do that? Which folder should be copied and than what needs to be edited? Thanks.

The file (section.boxes.php) needs to be copied from the folder platformpro (in your themes folder in your WordPress install) and pasted into the folder platformbase. However, I'm not exactly sure how the code needs to be edited to allow links to be opened in new tabs, so I searched for an alternative solution that might be easier. I found this plugin which you can try: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/open-in-new-window-plugin/
