Link in description of product is not open in new window

Post by Zuza Ritt » Tue Jun 02, 2015 5:32 pm

I always set all links in description of my products at Kitely Market as "Open in new window." It does not work now, link is opened in same window. Tried in several browsers at Win 7, at my products (I don't know anybody else's settings). For links which ARE opened - other Kitely page, youtube.
I am sure it worked right once, do not know how long it is.
Is this a feature now? My fault in some way?

Thanks, but no. Editor for Kitely Market products description has not allowed HTML, only WYSIWYG editor with few options.

Hi Zuza,

In Kitely Market, we only enable links to other Kitely pages, to YouTube, and to Flickr.

What links are you trying to open?

Ilan,
exactly these kind of links. Like here:
https://www.kitely.com/market/product/6 ... ect-Realis
Second line of description is link to youtube video.
There are links at the end of description to my kitely world page.
All links are set as "Open in new window" and they are opened in same window.

If I recall correctly, those links were always set to be opened in the same page. Did you check your browser settings for whether or not to open links in a new tab?

I can remember it worked as I said, but I have no "proof" of such a basic function anyway. So we can closed it now with your statement it doesn't work as could be expected by users - there is a function for it in WYSIWYG editor, which never worked.
Thank you for your explanation, Ilan.
