I am using SharePiont Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. I have a list on a page, and one column in the list is URL type. Currently, when I click the link, the URL pointed destination page will be opened in current browser windows. How to make the page pointed by the URL open in a new browser window?
This question is an "oldie but goldie" :-)
Andrew Connell has a more generic way of solving this using an "open in new window" field: http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/articles/SharepointLinksListOpenInNewWindow.aspx
There is nothing that is out of the box that will do this. Your best bet is to used SP Designer and convert the list view WebPart into a data view WebPart. Then you can edit the XSL and set the
target = _blank. At my work we developed a Advanced Links List WebPart which adds a target column to the list automatically and handles instances such as this as well as being able to display a links list as a treeview, menu or other type of control.
