I explored various methods to make SharePoint link list to open in a new window at: SharePoint Link list: Open in a New Window, While the methods discussed in the article are applicable for SharePoint 2013 too, there is a one more: using calculated columns! Lets drill down in detail with SharePoint 2013 to make links to open in new window.
Here is the idea: Create a new custom list and make these changes to the list.
- Rename "Title" field to "Link Title"
- Add a field "Link URL" of single line of text
- Add a field "New Window" of choice with "Yes", "No"
- Add a calculated field of "Number" type with formula:
=CONCATENATE("<DIV><a href='",[Link URL],IF([New Window]="Yes","' target='_blank' ","'"),">",[Link Title],"</a></DIV>")
So now, When you add new entries to SharePoint list, set the choice field to "Yes" to make SharePoint 2013 link list open in new tab.
