Open link in a new window in Sharepoint Portal Server

  Asked By: Antione    Date: Jul 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1835

We would like to be able to open our links in a new window in order to avoid the lost of the SharePoint page. I’ve found a few solutions, by modifying owsbrows.js, but in this case a new page is open for everything.

Is there a simple way to open a link in a new browser?

Are you just talking about links  from a Links list or all links? Although not the primary functionality the Links List in our Site Properties web part will let you specify the target. Send me an email off-list if you would like a trial version.

If you want this control per anchor tag, just set the target property to “_blank”:

<A HREF="whatever.htm" TARGET="_blank">Open new browser window  and go to my href.</A>

We have been having the same issue with users being
upset that they don't have the ability to set links  to open  new windows. We
have on the radar screen to build a custom web part, just no developer time as
of yet.

One question... any idea as to why or how I could fix this to work for the
Summary View for a Links List? It works on the All Links view, but not Summary.
