Markdown to open link in new tab

Does noloco have a markdown format to open link in new tab? I’ve tried things like {:target=“_blank”} and target=“_blank” with no success. Ideally external links would all open in new tab by default but I’m trying to do this as a workaround.

We do!

You can append {target=_blank} to the end of your links


[my link]({target=_blank})

excellent, that works, thanks!

Is it also possible to use this for website links in records when clicking on stored links? Does not seem to work there.

Can you clarify the question @JCW ? What I’ve mentioned above is purely for Markdown text

Yes I wondered if there is a possibility to open links in new tabs when clicking on a link. Outside of fields that support markdown. So let’s say I have a field with website links and when a user clicks on a link by default the site opens in another tab. This is to ensure the noloco application remains open in the original tab.

Do you mean when you’re displaying a field as a link? I believe we have a separate option for that actually

I use a formula to achieve this. My users can enter the link text and URL and the formula builds the markdown. I display that markdown link wherever desired.

IF({Client link},
IF({Product},"["&{Product}&"]"&"("&{Client link}&"{target=_blank})"&"   "&{Additional Info},
IF({Client link},"<"&{Client link}&"{target=_blank}>",Product&"   "&{Additional Info})),Product&"   "&{Additional Info})

Thank you very much for this workaround! @onlymatt
