Hi. I have an internal Content Management System program that I am working on.
I need to be able to open multiple tabs by a click of a button.

Right now i have this:
function editAll() {
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=608', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=607', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=612', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=606', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=605', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=604', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=603', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=602', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=601', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=600', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
window.open('https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=599', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,location=0,menubar=0');
}

Open in new window


But that will only open the first URL (https://mycmssite.xyz/page_templates.aspx?page_ID=608)
And it opens it in a new window rather than a new tab. What should I do to open all of these at once in each new tab?

add jquery library and then :

$(function(){ // On DOM content ready...
    var urls = [];

    $('.yourlinks a').each(function(){
        urls.push(this.href);// Store the URLs from the links...

    });

    var multilink = $('<a href="#">Click here</a>');// Create a new link...
    multilink.click(function(){
        for (var url in urls) {
            window.open(url);// ...that opens each stored link in its own window when clicked...
        }
    });

    $('.yourlinks').replaceWith(multilink);// ...and replace the original HTML links with the new link.
});

My code fails the same way when the popup blocker interferes.  I happen to run the Google Toolbar and so I have to be logged in and have the popup blocker permitting popups for the page that is launching the new tabs.  My application is basically a menu that permits a selected series of tabs to be opened in one click.  One such example is as follows:

<br><a href="http://download.microsoft.com/" target="_blank"
        onclick="
            window.open(&quot;http://www.microsoft.com/";);
            window.open(&quot;https://partner.microsoft.com/US/40096013";);
            window.open(&quot;http://support.microsoft.com/";);
            ">

sognoct, it doesn't work. It opens just the last url in the list. Can you please test it, make sure it works and give me a working example?

ok, this is a sample on the fly (I semplificated the code a lot)

When I started the page my chrome advised me that smart popup was activated, so I had to allow the page to open multiple pages!!! This because in every modern browser there is a smart control to prevent malware coder to create viral and annoying pages.

I am sorry I picked the wrong answer by accident as the best one. I wrote to the administrator about my error. Hopefully they get back to me soon and undo my error so that I can award the points to sognoct for the best answer.
