Hi I am not wet behind the ears with web design so constructive ideas only please.


target=blank is ok for most people. Using internet explorer 11, If I use  it creates a new tab in the browser but some like the BBC < a UK company> open up an internet on line listening service for anyone in the world, PROBLEM. This does not open up as an extra tab in IE it opens up a totally separate windows/browser window.


Can I do this even if it is a pop up help. Preferably taking data session variables etc with it


Hope this makes sense. Nice replies appreciated.

I found without providing height and width it opens a new tab but this opens a new window:

<script type="text/javascript" >
function myfunction(){

You can add or delete parameters to hide status bars, menus, etc.  You can add a button or text like this to open the new window:

<a onclick="myfunction()">New Site</a>
