Web version - opening links in new windows

I am using a Campaign Monitor basic newsletter template. When I view the web version of my enewsletter, it does not open external links in new windows. However, all links are opening as new windows when I test my enewsletter in my mail client.

Is there a way to edit the web version so that links open as new windows?

Hello,

Do your links include target blank? Your link code should look like this <a href="LINK" style="STYLE" target="_blank">TEXT</a>

Hope this helps,

Hi kcnz,

Alex is correct about target="_blank", and this also works for Campaign Monitor specific tags such as <webversion>.

In other words, you can add the target attribute like so:

<webversion target="_blank">Web version</webversion>
