I'm brand new to Adobe Edge and am not much of a coder
I'm trying to publish something in a widget format. I want to have a couple of links within the widget, that when opened, open up in a new browser window. As is, they open up within the widget screen.
Can anyone help?
If I read your question properly, there is no coding involved in this case.
I do not know how you have the 'click' handler established to open the widget screen!
At any rate you may have something similar to this
The above line has two parameters, a uri and a target.
The uri is self-explanatory as it is the url of the page you want to visit.
The target window, as noted above, targets the current window location "_self".
So to send the target to another window other than the one the click originates from, then change that parameter to "_blank".
In other words it now should look like this
