I would like to customise the twitter feed which is integrated into my site so that the links posted within the widget open in the same window.
As if someone was navigating within the site. I have a holiday villa rental site, intending to use twitter to highlight late availability villas
Currently clicking on the link opens a new window, as you'll know.
You need to edit the code so that in the href link there is a property called "target" set equal to "_blank". See code below:
<a href="http://yoururlhere" target="_blank">Link Text</a>
Is this what you're looking for?
When posting updates on my twitter feed, I had tried target="_ "but as soon as you leave a space between the end of the URL and the target attribute, or put inverted commas at the beginning of the URL, it doesn't recognise it. If you leave the same gap as your html ie "www.mysite.com" target="_self" then the target attribute is left separate from the link and doesn't effect how the window opens. I've also tried tiny-ing it, but www.tiny.cc doesn't like it either,
I want the link that is highlighted on twitter to act like the "target=_self" attribute, so it looks like you are navigating within my site within the same window
Does that make sense?
