We are using on-premise Sharepoint 2013..I'm more a power user and I'm used to SP Designer 2010 that actually had something for the Power User..Like Actual Design...I am looking for a way to open links from a links list in a new window using the js link from the web part tools..

I've been able to "open in a new window" by manipulating the "Target" attribute in designer, I think I was using a DataView to do this (I really don't want to make a dataview web part, because I want to stay away from being controller for all things SharePoint @ my job and make it more possible for others to do something without my help.)

I know this is old hat for all of you...But I am so unfamiliar with using the js link...

Thanks to All...

To resume you want a List of Links that lets you open the links in new Window (Or Tab) ? Try to create a list using Promoted Links Template. It offers a column Launch Behavior. After creating the list edit the default value of that column to New Tab. And without any js you have achieved you goal.

Hope this is what you are looking for.


I was able to accomplish this using jQuery by inserting the below code in a content editor web part above the links list.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
       $(".ms-vb a").attr('target', '_blank');     

  • This works is summary view! But my list is grouped and as soon as I group the list, it stops working.. Commented Jan 6, 2016 at 18:36
