    quick question? Sorry for being dumb but which “tag” do you mean?
    3. Search for the tag in your template’s code.

    thank you!

      Hello KarenH,

      I am sorry for this, I guess it was mistakenly omitted when I migrated from Blogger to WordPress. I have updated the post now and should work for you.

      Do have a nice day friend. 🙂

    Thank you for the tutorial. It works great, but I noticed that even when I click on the Next or Previous page link for my blog a new tab is opened each time. I currently have eight pages to my blog and each page opens in a new tab when I click on the Next Page link. Is there anyway to fix that?

    Thanks for that bit of code to get my links within my blog to open in new tabs, it was so easy to do. However, I now need to know how to fix a ‘Home’ button to show at all times on my google blog, even on the pages that open on the internet from the links in my blog. this is to allow me to always have a quick way back to my blog home page.
    I look forward to your solution.
    Many thanks again

    Hi guys, I’ve got a “recent posts” section on my site that shows my blog feed, but when clicked on, it opens in this tiny area on my site and I would like it to open in a new window, essentially my blog page. Any ideas? I’ve searched for days and I’m stumped. Thanks

    The intent was right but the code was poorly formatted. If other users are like me they will not have noticed for four weeks (!) that the bad code created an output of html code at th3 top of the blog page.

    This is the correct code:

    Hi thank you for this tutorial. I followed the instructions, but when I pasted the code, I received this message: Error parsing XML, line 5, column 17: The value of attribute “target” associated with an element type “base” must not contain the ‘<' character.

    It hasn't worked for me. What should I do? Your response would be so appreciated.

    It doesn’t work. I have no idea how to save chages. the only “save” button that exists is “save template” but when I leave template section I keep getting warning “changes haven’t been saved”. When checking links still open in same tab. Any suggestions?

    Type the command in manually instead of copying and pasting from the website. The apostrophe’s are the issue. You can also just delete them and retype them and it will save.
