Allow target as custom attribute for Blocks

  • Hi Support,

    When using dynamic data feature with Link on Headline Block for example, I am not able to add target=”_blank” as an attribute or activate this option. Please allow target as custom attribute.


  • Hi there,

    it is on our list, for now you can do it with some PHP.
    For example:

    add_filter( 'render_block', function( $block_content, $block ) {
    	if ( ! is_admin() && ! empty( $block['attrs']['className'] ) && strpos( $block['attrs']['className'], 'open-new-tab' ) !== false ) {
    		$my_search = 'href="';
    		$my_replace = 'target="_blank" href="';
    		$new_content = str_replace( $my_search, $my_replace, $block_content );
    		return $new_content;
    	return $block_content;
    }, 10, 2 );

    Once added select the Headline block and in Advanced > Additional CSS Classes add: open-new-tab
