I was able to fix the links in my page content. thank you
but I do not have the Customize > Menus > Primary Menu and expand each of your links using the triangle icon, where you’ll find the checkbox to Open in a new tab. when I press the triangle I do not see the box with the Open in new tab option.
Thanks for the reply, I’m sorry to hear that you weren’t able to get your menu links opening in the same window.
I’m not aware of anything other than the checkbox I included in the screenshot above that would cause your Nav Menu to open in a blank tab. Can you describe what options you do see when you expand your menu items in the Customize > Menus > Primary?
If you’re able to take a screenshot, that would be helpful as well. You can use a service like https://imgbb.com to share screenshots here in the forums.
I found the issue. THere is a wheel icon under the ? on the Your are Customizing Menus page. Clicking this wheel gives a list of things you can edit under each menu item. I just needed to check these.
