Open new tab in browser


Is there a method to add a weblink address to a wiki and have it open a new tab instead of opening in the existing tab? Will this work in all browsers or is this browser controlled?

    If you were to use the a href html anchor tag, then you should be able to also include a target attribute.

    <a href="url" target="_blank">Link Text</a>

    That should give you what you need as long as there isn't code that strips that functionality out of the site.

    Just tried it on one of my wiki pages and it didn't work, their code stripped out the target="_blank". Not sure how you'll be able to do it, but I'll think about it and if something comes to mind, I'll let you know.
