    Hi Andy-

    Happy New Year! Did you get my “new year” email? Let me know…

    Quick question, I noticed a few weeks ago (who knows how long it’s been happening) but when creating a new page & hyperlinking images, the option to have the link open a new window doesn’t appear to be working. You can set it in the page creation; however, when you actually save the page, it strips it away & makes the link open in the same window instead. I was able to create a workaround by looking at the basic code instead of using visual composer & adding the code back in then saving it. So I’m wondering if the issue is with Visual Composer. Have you heard of this yet and/or seen/duplicated it?

    Thanks!

    Hi James,

    Happy New Year too!

    I did thank you, the new Video is really awesome man, congrats!

    I’ve tested with 5.1 and the latest version of Visual Composer ( 4.9.1 ) and it works fine for me. What versions are you using?

    Hi Andy,

    Strange. I’m on Visual Composer (4.9.1) & 5.1 as well. I’m using Chrome btw (Version 47.0.2526.111 (64-bit)) Any idea what’s causing it?

    I’ve tested with Chrome too. Is this on the “Single Image” element and you’re using the “Click to action” option to link to a custom link?

    Yes to single image part. If you click on the settings for the single image & scroll all the way down those options, it says, “Link Target” & you can select “new window.” Instead of trying to explain it I decided to do a screen video capture (that’s kinda smart of me isn’t it? I can’t believe I never did that before *LOL*)

    Anyway, you can see the issue here: https://vimeo.com/151901765

    What do you think is happening? What should be happening is code being written when I click that option that says target=”_blank”

    Andy-

    I sent you the wrong link to view the video for this problem. Here’s the correct link (I removed it from my Vimeo account as to ensure it doesn’t show up anywhere else in collections). https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwNII52pT_i4TFpLTUVjUUZwVmc/view?usp=sharing

    Hi James,

    There are two single image elements. You’re using the older one, If you use the alternative, this will work.

    Ahhh, I was not even aware. Well, I could change all of the images to the new element but I don’t like the border it uses. Are you able to add any custom css so that I can keep the same border around the images? None of the ones the other one offers looks as great, IMHO, as the current rounded dark grey border. Thoughts?

    Hi James,

    I’ve fixed the issue with the single image – you can download the BETA version here: http://acoda.com/forums/topic/dynamix-5-1-1-beta/

    It’s near completion and fully usable.

    Hi Andy,

    LOL. I wish you had sent this 5 hours ago. I spent all evening rebuilding that entire page using the single image you told me to use & stopped using the other one. LOL. I could revert it all back but I made some other changes in the process so I’m going to just use the new one now. I do wish; however, the new one was rounded border like the old one though as I am not a fan of the regular box border. Anyway to change that part?

    I’m sending an email out in an hour about that video I shared with you earlier so whatever changes I make will have to be made within the hour OR late late tonight when no one notices. 🙂

    Here’s the page in rebuilt: http://JamesWantsToKnowYou.com/News
