Links opening in new window

Hi....Ive got this problem with my site. I have links for my customers that I want them to click but when they do a new window opens up and takes you off the home page.


Ive heard that this is detrimental to conversions, and Id like to know if there is a way to modify the link so it dosent take someone off the home page, and just loads right on the home page. Any info would be appreciated....

Hi Forbin001,

You have to look in the HTML source code of the pages where those links are. You will probably see something like <a href="destination.html" target="XYZ">. Removing the target="XYZ" part of the link should have the desired effect that the link opens in the existing browser window.
