There are times when you may want to add a link into your WordPress menu that is not a page in your site. Since I build a bunch of Custom WordPress Sites for those in the real estate industry, they sometimes want to link to a home search function that they already own on a different domain. But, when someone clicks on the link, they end up leaving their site and going some other place.
However, if the custom menu link opens in a new window/tab, then your site is still there on another tab. On the normal links you place in a page or post, you would simply add a short piece of HTML of target=_blank into your link. The only problem is that inside WordPress menus, you cannot add any HTML. So how do you accomplish this? I’m glad you asked.
Here’s a quick tutorial to walk you through it quickly & easily.
