Is there a way to specify a link target as a new tab in the existing browser window rather than a new window?

Hello Mark,

Using target="_blank" will tell the browser to use a new tab/window, depending on the user's browser configuration, and also depending on how they click on the link (middle click, ctrl+click, normal click).

So, the answer is you cannot specify to open a link in a new tab.

Note, that I found this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6296013/how-can-i-open-a-link-in-new-tab-and-not-new-window

But it's not recommended as it is not cross-browser.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

AllWebMenus Pro has the "Link Target" property. This property specifies the frame, iframe or window where the page specified by the "Link" property (of the menu item) opens. The image below shows the various options of the "Link Target" property.

If you choose option "_blank" the page specified by the "Link" property of the menu item will open in an new browser window. You can define the properties of the opening window selecting the option "use parameters". Then you have to click on the "use parameters" option and a window like the image below will appear and will allow you to customize the browser window.
