Open Redirects in New Window

  • Open Redirects in New Window
  • I'm developing a site in Sitefinity 4.2 and I have a variety of pages that are a redirect to an external page.  On those pages I have the checkbox "Open this link in a new window" checked, but the page doesn't open in a new window.
  • Hello Kevin,

    I tried to reproduce the issue but wasn't able. It seems that there aren't any issues with this functionality. Please follow the link to a video, which covers the steps to creating a redirect page with Sitefinity 4.2. Did you perform the same actions?

    Best wishes,

  • Yes, I followed those directions perfectly.  I've attached a screenshot showing the redirect page in Sitefinity, plus I provided a screenshot of one of the pages in question that's not working... You can see the page in question here: http://184.106.252.39/current-students

    The link to click on is "Bookstore".  It should open this link in a new window: https://web.dc3.edu/ics/Bookstore.jnz

  • Hello Kevin,

    We've already answered your support ticket, but for you convenience I'm posting the reply here as well.
    The issue reproduces in Sitefinity 4.2 on firefox, chrome and internet explorer browsers, but it does not reproduce in latest Sitefinity releases. It has been tested in Sitefinity 4.3 1873 and it works fine.

    All the best,

    It might have worked in 4.3.1873, but it's broke in 5.4.0.1

    Attached is an image of the settings. I am trying to open a page on our local website, in a new window. Even with that option checked, it opens in the same window as the page that calls it.
  • Stanislav, check the same process in 5.x and you're notice that your bug has found it's way back in! :)
  • Yip, 5.4.4 it's broken again too! Well done QA. 
  • It also seems to be happening in sitefinity 6.3

    I have a backend page with external link where i have set property of open in new window which not seems to be working.

  • Hello Kamran,

    I have tested the issue on version 6.3 and 7.0 and it seems works fine. Please find a short video demonstration of redirect page creation with checked option Open in new window.

    Can you please let me know if I am missing something out in my steps of the scenario you have?
