How To: Open a WordPress Menu Link In New Window or Tab?

01 Sep

I have come across multiple WordPress users who aren’t aware that WordPress has a bunch of functions hidden in the “Screen Options” section of multiple Administration Pages. Today I want to show you how to open links in custom menus in a new window or tab (i.e. add a target=”_blank” to link or menu items). Just follow the steps below to unearth the hidden WordPress feature.

Step 1:
Click on Appearance >> Menu in the WordPress dashboard.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about,
    why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to
    your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    And all this for a model that’s soon due for replacement.
    two line coupled with a combination of Lab Grupen and Powersoft power
    and processing for a combined output of 50,000 watts.
    The term is clear: the screen may be even your television
    set, and in high-end systems you can use an digital projector or the
    best TV that you can find.
