Hello, Is there anyway to make a link from the banner announcement open in a new tab. I'm linking to an external site but want to make it easier for people to find their way back.

Hi @Dave104, glad to help you with your question. I’m sure, my given answer will help to solve your problem by following given steps

Go to Online Store > Customize > header > announcement Bar Text

And paste this code by replacing “” with your desired link

<a href="" target="_blank">Announcement bar link</a>


Hopefully, that solves your problem. If not, please let me know if you're seeing any other issues.

Hey there,
You need to update the HTML code to open the link in the new tab.
We can make the link dynamic for you so you can update it from the theme editor.
Please contact me on my email to get further help.
