I am using the default "blog site" template in SharePoint, my question is "how to open in new window a particular blog post?"

What happens is, although I am pointing to the particular URL,

e.g: http://mysite/newsandevents/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=1 http://mysite/newsandevents/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=2

This will still open the full blog roll hence we cannot link from the homepage a particular news because the purpose is defeated.

If this was ever answer before, I would really appreciate if you can direct me to the resolution.

Add a Script Editor Web Part and use the jQuery script below to re-write blog title links to be opened in new window.

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script> 

    $('.ms-accentText').click(function () {
    $(this).attr('target', '_blank');

enter image description here

  • hi Falak, thanks for your reply, question though, should I create a .js script and reference it to the content editor?

  • If you want to keep it in version control then better create a .js file. sympmarc.com/2011/05/03/… Commented Jun 19, 2015 at 2:21
  • I don't know what is wrong with SharePoint or the issue is with me but this is not working for me. :( Is there any other way?

  • Can you add a script editor or content editor web part on the landing page? Commented Jun 19, 2015 at 3:35
  • Yes, I can do that. Tried adding the script as per your advise using "script editor" but it just wont work as per expectation.
