We in the Love & Romance Forum love, love, love the new editor with all the coo-wul tools, but... it seems there's a problem with the link feature. We frequently link to the PBS description for a particular book and many of us try to add the "new window" attribute. But it isn't working!

Right clicking on the link to edit it shows that the URL is saved as expected, but the target attribute is not. Can this be fixed?

Colleen,

Make sure that you are copying ONLY the link beginning with the www.  If you copy the whole link (including the http:// part) it will not work as there will be http://http://www -rest of link.

ETA:  If you think that this isn't the issue, then I would send feedback to the team using the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page.  They don't always read the forums.

It seems like none of the Target options are working, at least in Firefox. I've noticed that pasting links works differently between IE and FF, so it's possible that the other options do also.

You should report this using the Contact Us link at the bottom of the screen.

I've submitted my original post directly to PBS via e-mail. Hopefully, they can fix this...

TY, Cathy for mentioning the problem also occurs with Firefox. I have IE. I know others in the L&R Forum are experiencing the same problem, but i haven't asked what browsers they are using.

Mary, the linking tool automatically removes the http://. There's no need to attempt to copy only a partial URL to avoid having this information duplicated in the link.
