When you add a hotlink or an external link or you link an image somewhere else in a post or page, you want to be sure to select:
- “open link in new window”. This opens a new window, or “external” link.
This keeps a window open for your readers, while allowing them to open a new window and see whatever it is you linked too.
You do not want to lose readers because you send them to another website and then they cannot get back to yours or forget about what they were doing on yours!
- All links should always be set up to open in a new window.
