I am using this bit of jQuery code to get href of the link:
var url = $(this).attr('href');
-- and this bit of code to go to that href:
window.location = url;
Everything is just the way I want it, except the new page opens in the same window as the previous one, and I want it to open in a new window or tab (something that in plain html would have been achieved by using target="_blank" formula).
Question: How can I open the href in the new window or tab with jQuery?
Thank you for your help!
