>How to Open Links in a New Tab in WordPress Visual and Text Editor

In my previous post, I’ve shown you how to open a menu item in a new tab in WordPress.

Now I’m going to show you how to open links in a new tab in a WordPress post. Of course, the same process goes for pages as well.

How to open links in a new tab in Visual editor

1. Select the text (press and hold the left mouse button and drag over the text) that you want to be linked, press the Insert/edit link icon, and then press the Link options button.

2. Add the URL, check the Open link in a new tab box, and click Add Link.

2. Now the same window will pop up, as you saw above. Add your URL, check the Open link in a new tab box, and click Add Link.
