Drupal - Link blank problem

Kevin's picture

[b]Q:[/b] I am using a link in drupal 6, I have set the link options to open a new page (html target="_blank"), when I click on the link a new page does open fine, but the original page is also redirected to the link target rather than staying on the page, how can I fix this?

[b]Q:[/b] It seems that this problem can be caused by a clash with the [url=http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics]Google Analytics[/url] module.

We fixed it on a problem site by going into the [url=http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics]Google Analytics[/url] settings (admin/settings/googleanalytics) and disabling the 'Track outbound links' setting (who would have thought it?!). This fixed the problem nicely for us!

Apparently the newest version of the [url=http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics]Google Analytics[/url] module has fixed this problem but we didn't have time to test it. If anybody has success through updating the module, please let us know!

Thanks to all at:


for the pointers!
