Adding Links in a Custom Page
If you would like to customize how your link opens on a custom page you may need to edit the source code to do so.
You will have three options for opening links: in the same tab, in a new tab, or within your Event Cloud event site. If you added the link using the WYSIWYG Insert/Edit link option you will notice that it says Target at the bottom of the pop-up with two options in the dropdown.
Leaving this set to None will mean that the link will open in the same tab the user is viewing the site. Setting the Target to New Window opens the link in a new tab for the user. The source code will look like this:
<a href="hubb.me" target="_blank">link</a>
The target="_blank" attribute is what determines how the link is opened.
If you want the page to open within the Event Cloud site, however, you will need to make a slight edit to the source code. Keep in mind this will only work if you are linking to another page within the site, such as a specific session or sponsor booth. Here is an example of what you will need to change:
<a href="https://mary.hubb.me/fe/schedule-builder/sessions/767001" target="_parent">link</a>
Note that the target="_blank" attribute has been changed to say target="_parent". This is what determines that the link should open within your event site.
