    Hi,

    By default the social links that appear in a members profile (if they add they're social links to their profile information) open the link in the same window. How can I set it to open social links in a new window?

    @ryanmaler from my testing they are not links, just plain text. I'm not able to click on them. Perhaps that is a feature of your browser or associated browser plugin? Or even a site plugin.

    @tjchester,

    We are thinking of different areas of I think. Right topic though. In the image I attached is it possible to make that social icon open in a new window? I don't want members leaving my site just to checkout someones facebook page.

    @ryanmaler I understand now. Find line 39 of single.php and add this code within the a tag:
    target="new"
    If that doesn't work try
    target="_blank"

    @tjchester,

    Neither of those worked out. I moved single.php into my child theme tried each at the end of line 39 just before the closing </a>.

    @ryanmaler sorry it is also on line 57 of buddypress/members/single/members-header.php it will go inside the <a target="new"> tag

    @tjchester,

    I can't seem to get it to work. What am I doing wrong here?

    Here is single.php (line 39):

    <a target="new" class="btn" href="<?php echo $url; ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr($name); ?>"><i class="alt-social-icon alt-<?php echo $social; ?>"></i> </a>

    Here is member-header.php (line 57):

    <a target="new" class="btn" href="<?php echo $url; ?>" title="<?php echo esc_attr($name); ?>"><i class="alt-social-icon alt-<?php echo $social; ?>"></i> </a>

    @ryanmaler did you copy the member-header.php in the same folder location in the child theme or did you just put it in the root of the child theme? (it should be in the same file structure)

    @tjchester,

    Rookie mistake. I copied the proper folder in and it's working now. Thanks.
