Did you know? WP Menu Trick
When working online, there feels like there is always something new to learn.
I have been building websites for three years now and I still learn new things I can do with WordPress.
One of those things has to do with the menu.
I never had need for this particular feature so I never looked into it. I just assumed it was not possible so never 'Googled' it.
One of my clients is very particular about her links and wants EVERYthing to open in a new tab - including her menu items.
As I said, I did not think it was possible.
Then I searched and guess what?
Of course it is possible and it doesn't take any custom coding!
Go to Appearance > Menus
Then look in the top right of your screen for Screen Options
Tick the Link Target box
Then look at each of your menu items you wish to open in a new tab
Tick this box
Make sure you save your menu again!
and that is it! Now this menu link will open in a new tab. :)
Cool trick ;)
