    Hey guys,

    I have three footer menus here: and I would like them to open up in a new tab. I’ve already ticked this as I saw that one should switch on this option from a previous post but, unfortunately, it didn’t seem to help out.

    The ones that should open in a new tab are the following:

    Special Olympics International
    Play Unified
    Coaching Guides

    Any ideas please?


    Hey Matthew,

    this is WordPress’ default behavior (and nothing theme related). However, when you are on the menu page, click screen options at the top and check mark “Link Target”.

    Now when under your menu items menu there should be a check box to “Open link in a new window/tab”

    Best regards,


    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for getting back to me – didn’t know it was a WP default behaviour. As I pointed out in my first post, I’ve already done the ‘Link Target’/’Open link in a new window tab’ and unfortunately it’s still not working.

    Any other suggestions please?

    Please add following code to functions.php file in Appearance > Editor

    function remove_title_attr(){
    jQuery('#footer a').attr('target','_blank');
    add_action('wp_footer', 'remove_title_attr');



    Thank you Yigit, that code did the trick.

    Thank you both for taking the time in answering my query.
