Koha Question of the Week: Can an URL Link Open in a New Window?

Each Friday, we will bring you a new Koha Question of the Week. We will select real questions that we receive and share the answers with you!

Question: Can an URL Link Open in a New Window?

Answer: For libraries that have URL links to their records in the OPAC- YES!

Koha has a system preference called, OPACURLOpenInNewWindow, which can be set to DO. If set to DO, then when a patron clicks on an URL in a record, this will open up in a new window. This is extremely convenient for the patron, so they don't lose out on their search or place in the catalog.
