"_blank" target and "popup blockers"??
dvanbrunt - 6/23/2004 at 02:22 PM

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong but why would a popup blocker block a simple link click like using the "_blank" target on a menu node? The only other way I can see to do these to get around the blocker is to have no target but to call a node event function that uses blocker friendly code to link? I must be way off because I'd figure Softcomplex must have thought of this and work it somehow.

Any suggestions?

I'm not sure about the particular popup blocker, so could you test it on the demo2 of the product and whether this blocker blocks simple link (<a href="URL" target="_blank">bla-bla</a>) with same URL and _blank target specified?

Sorry, My mistake I did not just have a basic node with a link. I also had an event handler on it to meet a condition = true or false and then return true or false. I thought this might be a good way to have a confirm box popup before opening another window for the user.
Is this not correct?

This is true
