Looking for someone to take the following and add the equivalent of html 'target=blank' to open a new window.
<!-- Ad 1 link url: Text Input -->
<label for="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'link1' ); ?>"><?php _e('Ad 1 link url:', 'mediapress') ?></label>
<input class="widefat" id="<?php echo $this->get_field_id( 'link1' ); ?>" name="<?php echo $this->get_field_name( 'link1' ); ?>" value="<?php echo $instance['link1']; ?>" />
Denzel Chia answers:
The target _blank should be added at the output of the widget, which can be found in function widget of the widget class, and not at the form input.
There should be a line of code in function widget that echos the $instance into a link.
Just send me an email telling me the details and I will add it for you.

I won't charge you an hour for this, I will accept this price money.
Looking forward to your reply.

That doesn't really make any sense... You can't add target="_blank" to a input field (which I assume is of type='text'
What are you ultimately trying to accomplish?

I have an Ad widget with a URL input field. The above code is the Ad's URL input field. I'd like to have the Ad's link open in a new window.
Lew Ayotte comments:
You'll need to edit the Widget code or if it's coded properly, you'll need to add an hook to your functions.php file... the plugin might also have a setting somewhere to tell it to open ads in a new window.
What plugin are you using?
