    How Can I create a link that opens in a new window or pop up from within a lightbox?

    Asked by modup on September 17, 2012 at 03:24 PM

    As the questions states,


    I have a form embeded in a light box, and would like a link to open in a new window or popup.


    I have tried the following attributes:


    _blank results in the new page opening within the light box.


    _parent opens a new page on the current page.


    I want users to be able to view the link without closing the form.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Can you please share with us a link to your test page?

    target = " _blank " - is supposed to open a new tab.

    _blank does not escape the lightbox?

    As far as I understand, it should be completely new and separate page (tab) for _blank parameter.
