Opening a New Tab or Window in Your WordPress Menu

In this WordPress training video (no audio), you will learn how to set your menu links to open in a new window or tab.

When to use the Open New Tab / Window Feature?

When it comes to menu items that navigate/link to pages/sections of your website, you ideally would have them opening in the same window or tab. This features is best used to link to external websites that navigate away from your website content so that users don’t get lost or distracted on a website that isn’t yours. It also prevents them from having to use the “back” arrow to have to come back to your site.

A great example of when you’d use this feature is linking of to an external website like Facebook or LinkedIn.
