Hi folks,

Is there a way with SilverStripe to add a redirect page that will open in a new window? I know there is a redirect page, but that will redirect the current window.

I know this was covered in an archived message .... .... and have found the navigation template and insert <% if is_a(RedirectorPage) %> target="_blank" <% end_if %> however unsure about how to put this in an <a> tag correctly ???

Any help much appreciated :-)

I havent used this, but I imagine it would be something like:

<a href="$Link" <% if is_a(RedirectorPage) %>target="_blank"<% end_if %>>$MenuTitle</a>

Just came across this thread, looking to open redirect page links in a new window - but only external redirections. Code I used successfully is

<% if is_a(RedirectorPage) %><% if RedirectionType = External %>target="_blank"<% end_if %><% end_if %>

Or that can be simplified to just

<% if RedirectionType = External %>target="_blank"<% end_if %>
since only redirector pages have a RedirectionType
