Is there a way with SilverStripe to add a redirect page that will open in a new window? I know there is a redirect page, but that will redirect the current window.


Thank you simon_w!

added this to my navigation template =)
<% if is_a(RedirectorPage) %> target="_blank" <% end_if %>

I'm trying to do this exact same thing, but not having any luck. I'm not sure where exactly to put the if statement. I added it to my template, but it's not working properly. Instead of my menu item behaving like it has the target=_blank property, it's displaying target=_blank in the menu.

You need to put the if statement inside the <a> tag. Something like this: <a href="url" if statement>title</a>

Thanks, that did the trick.
