Hi folks,

I have a couple of Pop-Ups which contain links. These links should self close the Pop-Up, and then open up a new browser window to follow the link. I'm using the following function - but where do I specify that a new browser window should be used when someone clicks on the link (basically like a target: blank)?

PHP Code:
function goAndClose(url) {
  
opener.location.href url
  this
.close;

and the link in the Pop-Up is marked like this:

PHP Code:
<a href="javascript:self.close();" onclick="goAndClose('http://www.google.com/')">Google</a
Can someone help me out?

And by the way: does someone know if its actually possible to force up opening a new browser tab (in IE7/Firefox) instead of a new browser window??
