The option for opening a link in the Redactor WYSIWYG no longer includes a field for opening it in a new tab? I haven't been able to find any docs that indicate any options for the Redactor config file to add this back in?

Add the linkNewTab config option to the Redactor config you're using: So, that would become something like:

    "buttons": [...],
    "plugins": [...],
    "linkNewTab": true
  • Top man. Really helpful. I did have a look through the docs but clearly missed that. Much appreciated.

  • Hi @Paul - I'm trying to configure Redactor in the same way but am not having any luck. I found a Simple.json and Standard.json files in /config/redactor/. Is this the correct place to make the changes? Is there anything I need to do after making the changes before the field will show up?
