This link pops.

It took me a long time to figure out how to do this so I figured I'd post it for any new bloggers who don't wanna waste all that time.

If you want to make your links open up in a new window add "target=(whatever)

Ex. < a href="http://www.nolaorbust.blogspot.com/" target=1 >Adventures in the Big Easy < /a>

becomes

Adventures in the Big Easy (pop!)


I did that for all my links in the sidebar. The next link is "target=2" and so on. There is a code to make every link pop but they'll just open in one window. This way each link gets it's own page.

Some people don't like this practice. Apparently they like to use their back button for some reasons. I personally like to click a link, check it out, maybe explore links on that page, follow those links etcetera and then go back to the original. New windows make that a lot easier.

The opposition:

THIS LINK POPS

THIS LINK POPS

THIS LINK POPS

I may get rid of all those pops sometime. For now, since this is my first webpage, I like to play around with html. Feel free to post your opinion in the comments.

I agree with you!

It really annoys me when links open onto the same page - I usually close it accidentally and lose the page!
