Description

Attached screenshot shows that the site admin intends the link to open in a new tab,but it doesn't - I've tried on Chrome and Firefox on a PC.

Can you please give the URL of a post where you've tried this?

#3 Updated by Boone Gorges 6 months ago

Thank you. It looks like the WP Accessibility plugin is disabling them. See "Remove target attribute from links" at Dashboard > Settings > WP Accessibility. If the user would like links to open in a new tab, that checkbox will have to be unchecked.

What a silly thing. I'll let the user know. (How is this an accessibility issue? She asked rhetorically.)

#5 Updated by Boone Gorges 6 months ago

The real accessibility issue is that users should be warned about the behavior. See https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/G201.html, https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H83.html
