How to open a new window from the Twitter bar?

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone!

I'm using Platform theme and have a twitter bar in the Morefoot area. I wouldnt like visitors to my site to leave it when they click on the tweet or username.

How can i make this link open the twitter page on a new window?

Thanks for your help!

I'm not sure this is possible, but if it is, this would be the method.

You have to copy the twitter section from PlatformPro to PlatformBase (which should be active) then, edit the section.php file in the copied folder, to include target="_blank" in the URL.

Place the copied twitter section folder (and contents) to PlatformBase via FTP and it should work. If not, please let us know.

Hi Rob, thanks, i was about to modify one of the last lines in section.twitterbar.php like this...

echo '" &mdash;&nbsp;<a class="twitteraccount" href="http://twitter.com/#!/' . pagelines('twittername') . '" target="_blank">' . pagelines('twittername') . '</a></span></div>';

... But indeed just noticed the twitter bar opens links in a new window. Is it possible that someone from pagelines modified it? Or maybe i just didnt try right before?

Thanks for your a lot for your help anyway!

I'm not sure if this answer is out of date or not, but I'm having the same issue with TwitterBar as the original poster.

I tried editing the section.php file in the FTP folder Themes > PageLines > Sections > TwitterBar > section.php.

From: (line 36)

'<span class="twitter">%s &nbsp;&mdash;&nbsp;<a class="twitteraccount" href="http://twitter.com/#!/%s">%s</a></span>',

To: (line 36)
'<span class="twitter">%s &nbsp;&mdash;&nbsp;<a class="twitteraccount" href="http://twitter.com/#!/%s" target="_blank">%s</a></span>',

It didn't seem to have an effect.

The next line has the "pagelines_tweet_clickable" function but I'm not sure where that is located to see if there's something to modify there.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
      Best regards,

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:

      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
