This is probably incredibly simple, but... Is there a way to have the links on the links page open up in a new window? I would like to keep my site active while allowing viewers to go to a link site.

Thanks in advance for your help (and patience)!

in layout/yourtheme/links/linkdetails.thtml, add target="_blank" to the link tag.

I'll leave it as an excercise to the reader to fix the What's New Block (hint: find the appropriate function in lib-common.php and add the same tag).

Post again if you need further help.

It may not seem like much to you PHP gods/godesses out there, but I did it!

I actually modified my lib-common.php to open up What's New links in a new window. I didn't even crash the system once. (That for me is a record!!!).

Thanks for your support!

Blessings!

i think it should look like this :
Text Formatted Code
<li>
  <strong><a href="{link_url}" target="_blank">{link_name}</a></strong> ({link_hits})<br>
  {link_description}
</li>
