Hyperlink in Newletter

Postby taggartm » Mon Aug 19, 2013 4:37 pm

Is there a way to keep the newsletter page open while clicking on a Hyperlink to a Mormon message and have it automatically open a new window to the Mormon message?

I am not sure how it would work in the situation you mention, but with most browsers, if you right click on a hyperlink, you then have the option to open the link as either a new tab in your currently opened browser, or in a newly opened instance of your browser.

lajackson's comment will help you if you're reading the newsletter.

On the other hand, if your question is from the newsletter article writer perspective (can I insert a hyperlink that will automatically open the link in a new window) the answer is no. Some web editing tools give you a choice when inserting a hyperlink whether you want it to open in a new window, but the Newsletter does not.

Normally the html code for a link is
<a href="http://www.yahoo.com">Go to Yahoo</a>
and for a new page it is
<a href="http://www.yahoo.com" target="_blank">Go to Yahoo</a

In the newsletter, you type the name you want to show, in this example Yahoo. You highlight it then you click the link symbol and enter just the url http://www.yahoo.com.

I tried various form of text to add target="_blank" but the website rejects it. Using the right mouse on the link and selecting open in new page does work however.

Incidentally, instead of a page you can open a blank email using the hyperlink. Follow the same procedure for a page. Say your name is Tom Smith and your email is name@domain.com. You'd type in the page Tom Smith, highlight it, click the hyperlink symbol and enter mailto:name@domain.com. If you'd like the mail to open with a title such as Newsletter, enter mailto:name@domain.com?subject=Newsletter.
