When using either of the following headers, can you make it open in a new window? (i.e. target=_blank)?????

header('Location: http://www.example.com');

or

header('Refresh: 5; url=http://www.example.com');


Probably very easy, just can't put my finger on it,

Thanks!

nope not to my knowledge, you'll need to use some javascript to do that. and i don't think your 2nd header syntax is correct - that looks like a javascript-esque string in a php function to me

first page:

<?
// your code
header("Location: example.php");
exit;
?>

example.php:

<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function open_window(theURL,winName,features) {
  var a=window.open(theURL,winName,features);
  a.focus();
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="open_window('http://www.example.com','example','scrollbars=yes,width=720,height=550,resizable=yes');">
<?
// your second page goes here
?>
</body>
</html>

hope that helps

You could aslo try

<head>
  <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="3; TARGET=_blank; URL=http://www.some.org/some.html">
</head>

you can't do it with headers or with a refresh.
You will have to use some sort of client side scripting like javascript.
