How do I set up external links to open in new tabs?

Answer: Certain text - typically body text or description text - can be formatted using the theme's built-in text editor controls. To open links in new tabs, first highlight the text and click Insert Link, then enable the checkbox to open the link in a new window. This will display the link in a new tab so the customer doesn't navigate away from your store.

Step 1: Highlight the text you want to add a link to. 

Step 2: Click Insert Link button.

Step 3: Select the Open this link in a new window checkbox.

Step 4: Enter the link. External links must begin with 'http://' or 'https://'.

Step 5: Click Insert link and Save your changes. Preview your live store to check that the link is working correctly.
