[Pro] text link to new window action

Hi,
Coming back to Freeway after seven years away. Am using 5.6.1 & wish to have hyperlinks open up new browser windows instead of using the window my site is in. Tried to use the text link action on a selected phrase of html text that was a hyperlink but the content of the ‘text’ field in the Actions window does not appear on the page. Any suggestions?

This action is best used within a run of text ie

Some text (insert action) more text.

Then choose all the text and apply some styling.

If you use it on its own then it is possible that the text will be styled at only 1px size and you wont be able to see it.

Hi David,

Thanks for the reply. the text is as you describe it. I direct the action to a blank page in my site, it opens a new window to that page, but the original window gets directed to the blank page as well. I want the action to leave the original page as is and pop up a new browser window that shows the target of the link. Can this action do this?

Oh yes, and can it do this to an external link on someone else’s site?

If you just want to open a new window/tab with the new site in it then use a normal hyperlink but use the _blank target selector - your page will need to be HTML 3.2, or aTransitional type to give you this option.

Why are you directing the action to a blank page?

Trial and error. I thought that might bring me closer to a solution. :confused:
