Hi @JohnC28. Depending on how your website is set up, you may need to add target="_blank" to the HTML or select an option to open the link in a new tab, if this is present. We don't have a specific code for this so it will need to be done on your site end.

 

There is an open feature request to select having links open in a new tab/window without needing to put code into the HTML. You can leave a thumbs up or comment on the post to receive updates should we have any to share.

Hi @JohnC28. Is this a button link within your campaign? Any type of link inserted into a campaign will open in a new tab. Please let us know if this is not the case.

It is a button embedded in the home page of our website. It's the SIGN UP button at the bottom of this page: https://www.livingproofadvocacy.com/

Thanks. (For anyone else running into this, the solution is add target="_blank"  right after the website address in the code.)
