Hello Experts,

If I have a number of grouped links on a page - how can I automatically open then into new tabs by a press of a button.


$('#ButtonOne').click(function() {
    $('a').each(function() {

<a id="group1" href="page1.html">Click Here</a><br />
<a id="group1" href="page2.html">Click Here</a><br />
<a id="group1" href="page3.html">Click Here</a><br />
<a id="group2" href="page4.html">Click Here</a><br />

<button type="button" id="group1">Open Links</button> - should only open page1.html, page2.html, page3.html
<button type="button" id="group2">Open Links</button> - should only open page4.html

Many thanks
