Ckeditor: "open in new window" option missing

5 years 7 months ago #123547 by bwinn
I'm going through the beginner tutorial for Drupal 8, using the same theme as the tutorial (Bartik), but in the tutorial the "link" button (full html option) opens a window that has a "open in new window" option. Mine does not. I've included the screen captures from the tutorial and from my computer (a Mac). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Drupal 8 in many ways is still in production and as such is ever changing I'm not sure why the button is gone but you can manually add that bit of code.

Create your link, then select the view "source button" this will translate it all into code.

You will see something like this :

<p class="text-align-center"><strong><a href="*************" >***********</a></strong></p>

now we need to add the bit of code that will make it appear in a new window.
<p class="text-align-center"><strong><a href="*************" target="_blank">***********</a></strong></p>

adding :

target=" _blank"

Tells it to open the page in a new window.

Hi and welcome to OSTraining bwinn,

You're right! The last version (8.0.3) doesn't include that feature. However, the suggestion by dclpuk would do the trick.

Kind regards,
Valentín
