    Opening a new window problem - please help!

    On my site, I link from a listing to a new window.

    The reason is that for the new window is valid because
    the listing gives summary info andthe new window shows the details.

    User may well want to keep several detail windows open and still browse the summary listing.

    Anyway ...

    The site works fine in Moz FF but in IE it is ... half working.

    If you look at my front page you will see a
    three advert listing. Clicking on the links in IE
    works fine - a new window is opened. And when you close the window you go back to the main window again.

    BUT if you go to one of the main listings eg "Local Services"
    and then click on an advert there - a new window is NOT opened

    Can anyone see why this is ?
    If source code isn't enough I can post the relevent code chunks here
    ( please ask )

    My site: www.yodbod.com

    Thanks for your help cos this is driving me mad !!!

    Just add target tag to each link you want to open in a new window:
    Like so:
    <a href="/local-services/professional/tradesmen/o/London/f/NXNN.html" target="_new">Local Services</a>

    "_blank" rather than "_new"
