How to Open Links in a New Tab with WordPress

Table of Contents

Are you looking for an easy way to open links in a new tab on your WordPress website? You’re in the right place. Opening links in a new tab is a great way to keep visitors on your website instead of sending them away. This helps to improve user experience and keep readers engaged with your content. Here, we’ll walk you through the steps of opening links in a new tab with WordPress.

Open up your WordPress dashboard and go to Posts or Pages, depending on where you’d like to add the link. Select the post or page that you want to edit and click “Edit” below it.

Click within the post/page editor, where you would like the link to appear. Then, click the “Link” icon at the top of your editor, which looks like two chain links connected together.

A window will pop up asking you to enter a URL or search for one within WordPress itself. Enter or search for the URL that you want to link and then click “Add Link” once it appears as an option below it. The link will now be part of your content!

To open this link in a new tab, hover over it until a small menu appears directly next to it with several options (edit, unlink, etc). Select “Open Link in New Tab” from this menu and voila! Your link is now set up to open in a new tab whenever someone clicks on it from your post/page!

Once you have finished making changes, don’t forget to save them by clicking “Save Draft” or “Update,” depending on whether or not you are publishing for the first time or editing an existing post/page!


Now that you know how easy it is to open links in a new tab using WordPress, why not give it a try today? It’s an excellent way to keep visitors engaged with your content while still allowing them access external information if they need it—all without ever leaving your website! Plus, having internal and external links opens more opportunities for sharing and expanding readership—which is always good news when running a website-based business! So give it go today—you won’t regret it!
