Opening item from Select List in new window
Posted on 2003-02-21
I want to have a 'select' tag on my HOME web page that provides a 'quick navigation' feature - when a visitor clicks a 'Topic' in the select list, I want the topic page to open in a NEW WINDOW.
I have tried a 'jump menu', but this defaults the target to 'parent'. Changing this item to '_blank' has no effect and the targetted page still opens in the original window.
All of my efforts with select tags and jump menus just result in the 'parent' window being used.
Also, would it be necessary to use '<form>' and '</form>' tags to enclose the visible components?
