Links open inside the gadget

Links inside the rich text gadget by default open the linked content inside the gadget. While it's possible to set the target to New Window is it possible to open the link in the current window instead of inside the gadget?


I am also having this problem with html links in the text gadget. 

My environment is a JIRA dashboard, creating a html link to another dashboard inside of a text gadget

linking like this <a href="urlhere">SCG_UFS_Lyra</a> opens the dashboard nested inside the text gadget on the current page.

adding target ="blank" is a work around and allows me to open the linked dashboard in a new tab but its not ideal because I lose the back button feature and it makes navigating back and forth more difficult. <a href="urlhere" target="blank">SCG_UFS_Lyra</a> 


Have you found a solution to this @Alexander?  I am having the same problem.  Thanks!

Change the target to "parent". This is the parent frame of the thing you are in (in this case, the gadget).

<a href="your url link here" target="parent"></a>

There isn't an option for this. The only options I see are None and New Window.
