Creating document links

Hello Everyone,

I quite new to Dreamweaver and need some assistance. I have created some links but they all open in a new window tab. There is a side column with a repeated region which links to a main column on the same page but it opens in a new window. The spry menu bar links also open in a new window. I would like all these links to open in the same window within my site. I am not using frames. I have tried using the target options and parameters but I can't get it to work right. Thanks much for the help

Creating links to documents

The links in the menu bar point to a new page in the site and the links in the left column points to information from a dynamic database using server behaviors. I am not sure if you can view the page since it has not been published. I only viewing it on localhost

if you dont have a target set in the links, they should not open in a new window if you are just loading standard HTML or PHP pages.


can you at least send a copy of the page so i can look at the code and see how the links are set up.

it looks like you may be pointing to word or text documents?

I am not that ignorant. The text documents will open in Microsoft soft word. I pointing to normal html and php pages. The information are contained within div tags. thanks

without being able to see the problem it's impossible for me to troubleshoot.

If you can upload it to a remote server where I can see the problem, I will be able to troubleshoot it and give directions on how to fix it.
