You know how some links open in a new window, thereby keeping the reader/viewer at your website/blog? My simple href links (built in functionality with bloggerspot.com) always navigate people away from my blog - to the linked site.
Many months ago, I tried to figure this out - how to have a link open in a new window. Just now, determined to get the bottom of it, I did a search and found out how simple it is. I found what I was looking for in about 5 seconds.
The trick is to add the code target="_blank" just after the final quote mark and before the close bracket symbol ">".
Note that below I've omitted the first open bracket "<" before "a href" to disable the functionality of the link...
a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgnjOZxVsCw" target="_blank">
Here is the result. Clicking the link should open a new window.
