open web part links in a new window.

If you need to open links in a new windows those nice people at msd2d have the answer:


This is a no-brainer... I have struggled to figure out how to have my links open in a new browser window and some of the examples I could find out there really looked tough, but thankfully this was far easier that I originally thought. Maybe this will help somebody else. Just create your links list, open the page that has the list view on it in FrontPage and right-click on the list, and click “Convert to XSLT Data View“. After it is converted, you can simply right-click on one of the links and select “Hyperlink Properties” and change the target frame according to your preference

Dude -

Thanks a lot of the tip on how to modify my Sharepoint site so I can open hyperlinks in new windows. I almost gave up (did't want to jack around with the schema and other off the wall solutions), but Google led me to your site. Many thanks!

A huge help - Thank you! The only other trick is if once you convert to XSLT data view, you lose the ability to edit your “View” setting for that page in SharePoint. So, if you want to alter the view, just switch back to default mode (in Designer), make the changes, and then go back to XSLT mode.
