    How to set a web page to open in a new window?
    When mapping a page to another URL, you want to ensure that the destination file or website opens in a New Window. This ensures an automatic return to your website when the end-user closes the destination window.

    Here's how you set the Map Page option to open in a New Window.

    In Site Manager, navigate to the Section Workspace that contains the Page you wish to map to a file or website.
    Click Actions to the right of the Page.
    Select Page Options from the drop-down list. The Page Options window displays.
    Type "target=_blank at the end of the URL in the Map Section to Web Address field.
    Click Save. The Section Workspace displays in the Summary tab.


    Note: "target=_blank will not display in the Map Page to Web Address field when you return to the Page Options. The system will still know to open the URL in a New Window.
