Ive implemented a SharePoint 2013 Farm Wide search for my site collections, and now want the URL's that get returned to open up in a new tab.

Is there a relatively effortless way to do this rather than messing with the display template, or is that the recommended way?



Good day!

If this is for a search results webpart (like results.aspx), than what I found easiest was to add a content editor at the bottom of the page and add a little jquery to achieve this. You can use something like this:

<script type="text/javascript">

This jquery will target all hyperlinks that appear in the search results webpart and change their attributes to open in a new tab. No messing with display templates.


you can override the default template rather easy - or you could add a jquery script to the search result page that handles the click event.
