So, is this possible with the current setup? I've tried several different options i found on textile sites, but none seem to function properly on OP. Anyone?

    No one has a clue? No one at all how to do this?

    There's no method I'm aware of off the top of my head unfortunately. Standard HTML is always an option for such links (though admittedly that was the request).

    I've never been able to get OP to open links in a new window or tab. I've tried everything I can think of to do it also, but nothing has ever worked. :-(

    I always just center-click (click down on your mouse's scroll wheel) to open any link in a new tab. Easy-peasy.

    My coworker/buddy knows a lot more HTML than me, and he just talked me through how to set it up. It didn't work, but it should have. It appears that OP has this disabled?

    Adding  target="_blank" should work, but doesn't.

    Yea...seems its either a Textile thing or an OP thing. Perhaps we can get this looked into and added as a capability? Would be a nice thing to have

    I believe OP has a few of those kinds of things disabled, but I could be wrong. Kind of like what they've done with JS.

    It can be done sort of.  Let me see if I can find the code I've used before.

    nevermind it creates a popup rather than a new tab.

    Popup would work too for what I'm trying to do

    Popup was the best I've ever achieved. Watching this thread, though, in case one of you bamf's figures it out!

    Anyone got the code for the said popup?

    You can view here

    But at it's most basic you can use this which is just a popup with the word test. The issue is you need to replace spaces and other special characters with the unicode character code ie space is %20

    "Popup2":javascript:(function()%7B%20var%20output=%20%22test%22;%20alert(output);%20%7D)();

    Next Question then is how to embed a Youtube Video in the popup?

    My guess would be to find code that would work outside of OP and then change spaces and other non alphanumeric characters to their percentage encoding equivalent.

    Here is a page where you can add a text and get the percentage encoding equivalent

    https://www.branah.com/unicode-converter

    You could throw

    function(){ var output= "test"; alert(output); })();

    into the unicode text and see the percentage encoding below.

    So I managed to make a popup to youtube using

     

    {window.open(" "toolbar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,top=500,left=500,width=400,height=400"); }

    and encoding it in a percent encoding.

     

    The end result being

    "Youtube Popup":javascript:(function()%7bwindow.open%28%22http%3a%2f%2fwww.youtube.com%2fwatch%3fv%3dJ4cnbylnRw4%22%2c%22_blank%22%2c%20%22toolbar%3dyes%2cscrollbars%3dyes%2cresizable%3dyes%2ctop%3d500%2cleft%3d500%2cwidth%3d400%2cheight%3d400%22%29%3b%20%7d)();

    Looks like it embedded to video, but basically I used the window.open function

    I remembered seeing this thread and wondered if anyone had found an answer. You can use the work around of creating a "Tooltip" and then puting a custom hyperlink in it to click and open, but I wasn't sure if that was close to what you were still working on
