Add a hyperlink to the space navigation. You can link to internal or external web pages. Enter the Tab name and Tab URL. Upload or choose an icon. Then click Save.
We configured several links in our spaces' left-hand navigation (below space photo/logo) to open in new windows/tabs, but this option only works until you navigate away from or refresh the page. Then the link will open in the current window/tab. When checking the configuration of the link, the checkbox for "Open in New Window" has been cleared.
There appears to be some bug in our instance where the "open in new window" option is being deselected or not properly saved, somehow. It appears that this option works as expected in rich text widgets, cms pages, etc.
This seems to be working in a test space I created on your site. Could you provide the URL for an example space where the custom tabs aren't opening in a new window? Feel free to open a private case here to share the information.
Thanks for your help. I followed your link and submitted the case, including a particular space in the recreation steps.
I just tried it again, in the hope that maybe it was a temporary bug, but am still seeing the issue.
The ultimate resolution was to recreate the affected tabs. Changing this to be the official answer, just in case others run into this issue and find this thread.
Thank you for the support!
