Targets in Dreamweaver
This sequence will allow you to open your projects in a new window. For example, a visitor to your site can listen to your podcast in a new window and continue to explore your site without navigating away from the podcast.
Set up your anchor and reference tag in your html file. I anchored and referenced my podcast file as follows:
<a href =”sounds/macau_draft.mp3″
Before closing the anchor tag include the following:
Now close the tag, write the text that the file is anchored to, and close the anchor. Mine looks like this:
<a href=”sounds/macau_draft.mp3″ target=”_blank”>Click Hear</a>
When someone clicks on ‘Click Hear‘ a new window opens and the macau_draft.mp3 file plays. My podcast will continue to play in the background while the visitor explores my website, stopping to take in the wonderful images scattered throughout.
