Okie dokie, maybe it is the weather up here! LOL! Actually, I got it to work but had to alter the code a bit. Here is what I had to use to get external website links to open in a new window.
Any other version made 2 windows open for me.
I now have another issue with pdf files on this site. I have 2 test links for this. One is a full url link and the other is just the pdf file.
1. full url link: http://www.alaskamastergardeners.org/Ca ... lendar.pdf
(this one is located at ''Calendars', 'event calendar 1')
2. just file link: AMG_Information.pdf (this one is located at 'Advanced Master Gardener', 'Requirements 1'.
