Help:New window links


New Window Links allows you to specify that specific links you add to a page will open up in a new window (or tab, depending on browser) when clicked instead of forwarding the user along in the same browser window.

Step by step

  • Where you would normally link a page using wikitext like this:
    [[page name|link text]]
  • Use instead...
    {{ #NewWindowLink: page name | link text }}
  • Click the link on the save page - a new window or tab will be opened.


Here's some examples of different ways you can use these links:

Linked page/URL is also the text of the link
