jQuery code snippet to load/open a link in new window. This code adds an event to the anchor tags that are given the “new-window” class and forces them to open in a new window.

$(function(){
 $('a.new-window').click(function(){
 window.open(this.href);
 return false;
 });
});

Advanced jQuery Load New Window Example

This code gets the id of a container div and then grabs the hidden url div element and then opens it in a new window.

function openblog(blog_id) {
	//alert(blog_id);
	$('#blog-wrap-'+blog_id).hide();
	var blogurl = $('#'+blog_id+'-url').text();
	var location = "http://domainname/index.php?blogurl="+blogurl;
	window.open(location);
}
