Javascript - Window.open in a tab

Last Modified: 2014-06-01

I'm trying to a change to an old website that uses javascript to open up pages in pop-up boxes and change the functionality to op up the page on a new tab. Overall, I'm planning to move this entire website to a CMS system such as WP or Joomla but for now I'm going to fix this issue. Here is an example of the code that is being used to allow this to function with pop-ups:

Menu2=new Array("For the Employee","","",4,23,162);
	Menu2_1=new Array("Corporate HR","javascript:window.open('/hdintranet/divisionsites/corporate/redirectCorpHR.html','','toolbar=yes,location=yes,directories=no,status=no,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,height=400,width=630,top=30,left=160,position=40')","",0,20,185);
	Menu2_2=new Array("Plastics & Die Casting Center HR","javascript:window.open('/hdintranet/divisionsites/manufacturing/owensboro/index.html','','toolbar=yes,location=yes,directories=no,status=no,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,height=400,width=630,top=30,left=160,position=40')","",0,20,185);
	Menu2_3=new Array("Window Fashions Division","javascript:window.open('/hdintranet/divisionsites/manufacturing/wfd/index.html','','toolbar=yes,location=yes,directories=no,status=no,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,height=400,width=630,top=30,left=160,position=40')","",0,20,185);
	Menu2_4=new Array("Information Center","","",3,20,150);
			Menu2_4_1 = new Array("Cell Phone Discounts","/hdintranet/foremployees/informationcenter/phonediscount.html","",0,20,150);
			Menu2_4_2 = new Array("Do Not Call Registry","/hdintranet/foremployees/informationcenter/phonedonotcall.html","",0,20,150);
			Menu2_4_3 = new Array("Hertz Rent2buy Discount","/hdintranet/foremployees/informationcenter/hertzdiscount.html","",0,20,150);
