Hi,

- In CKEditor I set the target for a link to "New Window (_blank)"
- The link when pressed does open in a new window but it also opens in the originating window
- See here for an example (Click on "VA Website"): http://www.probonoaustralia.com.au/news/2012/02/national-volunteer-week-2012-volunteers-every-one-counts
- If you look in the source you will see that the target for this link is set to _blank

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I checked html source code on mentioned site and it looks fine.
I don't see the reason why CKEditor have something common with this issue.
Can you check add link with target="_blank" without CKEditor (in plain text) and check how it behaves ?

Hi,

Thanks for the speedy reply.

I tried as you suggested on the same page but unfortunately got the same result.

You're right that it doesn't appear to be a CKEditor issue but I didn't know where else to post the issue.

Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Please check if you get the same result when you use plaint text (without using CKEditor).

I think the problem, which I'm also having, is with internal links. Drupal see those and automatically triggers the overlay and loads them in _self within the overlay. I've been trying to override that somehow but hasn't have luck so far. Any ideas? Thanks. Federico
