    Hi

    When clicking on images I’ve added to the side bar that include a link to another site it opens the link in the same window.

    How do I change it so the it opens the link in a new tab/window instead of directing traffic away from my site?

    The blog I need help with is onamusicbender.wordpress.com.

    You need to add a target=”_blank” to the html of the links.

    Okay, this is not working when I add it. Please can you advise how I would add this to the following link: http://ecofurnituredesign.co.za

    You;d need to use a text widget instead of the image widget, since the image widget has no option to control link attributes.

    This is exactly the same in any theme.
