Hyperlink doesn't open in new window

Issue

The Open In New Window option for hyperlinks in the rich-text editor (RTE) component doesn't work. As a result, the link opens in the same page.

Solution

Declare the target attribute in the configuration file in CRXDE Light:

  1. Copy /libs/cq/xssprotection/config.xml to /apps/cq/xssprotection/config.xml.

  2. Open /apps/cq/xssprotection/config.xml.

  3. In the common-attributes section, add the following target attribute declaration.

    <attribute name="target">
      <regexp-list>
        <regexp value="[a-zA-Z0-9-_\$]+"/>
      </regexp-list>
    </attribute>

  4. Find the "a" tag declaration by searching the term <tag name="a".

  5. Add the line below in the list of attributes.

      <attribute name="target" />

     

  6. Save the file.

Additional information

This issue occurs because the XSS filter trims the target attribute of the "a" element.
