Hey I will try to explain this and make it easy to understand what I am trying to accomplish. First of all I am working with MagpieRSS I have it all set up you can view my progress here <snip> what I am having difficulties doing is making the news feed links open up in a completely new window such as with your basic code target=_blank or target=_new I have figured out how to have the titles of the articles open up in a new window, but the links and images which contain links within the description of the article itself will open up right on my page instead of opening in a new window.

So basically what I am trying to do is have the RSS feed links within the description open up in a new page so that my site stays where it is so that is dealing with any links within the description including images that contain links so my audience will be able to view their articles in a new opened window without having to leave my website.

I have provided the main code below as my html template to operate the function of opening the titles of the articles in a new window, but this code does not open up the links within the description.

`{section name=x loop=$items}
<strong>{$items[x].pubdate}: <a href="{$items[x].link}" target="_blank">{$items[x].title}</a></strong><br>

Your help would be greatly appreciative in helping me solve this problem with opening links up in the description of the feed in a new window.

Again my RSS feed is working with MagpieRSS and my test page is here <snip>
