Description

Scenario
User with no HTML-Knowlegde adds a page of type "Link to external URL" and wants it to open in a new page.

Problems

  • config.extTarget has no effect
  • URL must be entered on tab General
  • Link Target must be entered on tab Behaviour
  • He has to know about _blank (although it does not really matter)

Possible Solutions

  1. respect config.extTarget in menues
  2. add checkbox open in new page
  3. move Link Target to tab General near URL

Version
TYPO3 CMS 7.6.15

as a solution for you, you can modifiy the field to behave as select field which improves the usability a lot

In version 8 the link target is still in "Behavior" field, but the dropdown with "new window" (i.e. "_blank") is actually already present.

Update for this issue; this is the current situation (TYPO3 8.7.8)

- config.extTarget works now see https://forge.typo3.org/issues/78151 so it should be solved in the next release
- dropdown with "new window" (i.e. "_blank") is actually already present (TYPO3 v. 8.7: so no need for a checkbox IMO.
- the URL field is still in "General" tab (pagetype "External URL")

I wrongly wrote:

- the URL field is still in "General" tab (pagetype "External URL")

But in fact it is

- the URL field is still in "Behavior" tab (pagetype "External URL",as well as the others)
