How to open link in a new tab

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Links

How to open a web link in a new tab?

6 answers

 

TBH, this is not really a solution. What is required is to simply allow an editor of a Confluence page to select a target of a link, i.e. `_blank`

Hello.

 

Without HTML or the source editor I solved it with a user macro.

I just entered the following code:

<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery(".wiki-content a").attr("target", "_blank");
});
</script>

 

But: That affects ALL links on a page.

Can I somehow modify it so that only some links will be opened in a new page?

Hi Tommaso,

These links show you how to force links to open i a new tab:

As you're on the Cloud version you'll need to download an HTML macro for cloud if you want to do this; it is paid for but the pricing is very cheap.

Hello, you can ctrl+click a link to open it in a new tab

Like # people like this

didn't there use to be a checkbox for this simple functionality?
