Pro

Target window Where the links open.
  • Weblink uses the weblink settings
  • Same window
  • New window
  • Popup
  • Modal window
Popup width The width of the popup/modal window when showing the link in a popup or modal
Popup height The height of the popup/modal window when showing the link in a popup or modal
Follow / no follow For robots, allows indexing or not
Count clicks Counts the number of times a link is clicked
Note Counting clicks forces routing through Joomla. Otherwise the weblink URL is used as the link. You can use the weblink settings

When using the modal target window setting, be aware that some sites do not allow cross-origin framing (example: eBay or YouTube). Those links won’t open in a modal window (which is an underlying frame technically) and will break your design.

You may also run into mixed content issues if you are loading http sites from a secured one.
