Main nav item open target-blank


Is there a way of making a menu item (and its sub-categories) on the main nav bar open in a new tab/window?

These are custom sites to a different site.

There doesn’t seem to be the option…

Any and all help gratefully received.



Hello Oliver,

The option is already available within the menu item. However it’s hidden by default. To display it, when you’re in your menu editing panel (Appearance > Menus), expand the Screen Options and enable Link Target.

Now in your menu item’s settings, you have “Open link in a new tab”.
