Solved widget help (please)

Post by george20 on April 1st 2012, 1:53 pm

Hi all , How can I make the link that the arrows point too (in the pic below) click-able so when you click on it it takes you to that page rather than having to copy and past it ???

thanks in advance Dave

Go to Admin CP > Modules > Portal and Widgets > Forum Management:

Scroll down and find "Create a Widget", once you found it, click it and fill up the following:


Widget name : (Put here the name of the widget
Use a table type : Yes (Select Yes)
Widget title : (Put here the title of the widget which shows on the forum)
Widget source : <a href="LINK OF THE WEBSITE YOU WANT TO DIRECT WITH/">NAME THAT WILL SHOW</a>

Then save Wink.
Then find the widget you create on the "Personal Widgets" then drag it on the left/right side.

Try this:
Code:

<a href=LINK-HERE target=”_blank”>New Window</a>

Here's an example:
Code:

<a href=http://facebook.com target=”_blank”>New Window</a>

NOTE: Don't remove 'http://' Wink
