How to have a link in the Description field open in a new window

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to prevent hyperlinks in either the Description or the Web link field from opening a new window? I'd like to be able to send visitors to another page in my website, and there's no need to open a new window for that. (In fact is too confusing when a new window opens.)

By default, link targets open in new browser windows (or tabs, depending upon browser settings). This leaves the event detail page open in its original window so visitors can easily find the calendar again. If that's the link behavior you prefer, leave the target setting just as it is.

When you enter text or image in the Description field and then select the text or image and click on Insert Link from the HTML editor, you have the option to set the Target to  New Window (_blank), Topmost Window (_top), Parent Window (_parent), <frame>

You may want to consider other link target options, especially if you use frames or iframes on your calendar page:

  • New Window (default) The target webpage opens in a new browser window or tab.
  • Topmost Window The target webpage fills the original webpage, replacing the iframe content, if your calendar is in an iframe, or the calendar content if it's not. Visitors use the back button to return to the calendar.
  • Parent Window If your calendar is embedded in an iframe, the target webpage replaces the calendar in the iframe. If your calendar is not in an iframe, the target webpage fills the original webpage. Visitors use the back button to return to the calendar.
  • Named Frame If you have a named frame or iframe on the webpage where the calendar is embedded, the target webpage opens in the named frame/iframe, leaving the calendar visible.
