In Word (or the SharePoint UI) i try to set the target of the link i added to _self. This does not work. In fact, none of the options work and upon further inspection of the produced HTML code, the "target" tag is not even in the link. If i manually add it by editing the html in the SharePoint edit post window, it doesn't show after saving.
No matter what i do, the "target" tag is removed. How can i link to another blog post from within a modal window?
