    woowooced,

    You can actually do this with in the link that you place in the product setup. Something like:
    HTML:
    <a href="YOUR URL HERE" target="_blank">
    so adding the ( target="_blank">) to the end of your URL will do whatit is you are looking for!

    UPLOADWP AFFILIATE TAB PLUGIN

    For those of you selling affiliate products this plugin is for you. What the plugin does is #1 change the Single Product Page button text to "Buy Now" ( I have split test the effectiveness of many words for this button, and "Buy Now" is the most effective ) #2 it opens a new Tab in the users browser, leaving your site page as an active tab as well. ( If you have not noticed, without this plugin, the new page will use the same window ) #3 I have set the link to a "No Follow" state. ( Good for SEO )

    The above link will prompt a download. To use the plugin, download to your computer to a place you will remember. Opening the Wordpress Dashboard, go to 'Plugins' 'Add New' select the 'Upload' function. Activate plugin, and enjoy!

    This plugin has been tested on a number of Themes, Including Virtue, Mystile, and a few others.

    Great work Savidge4! I just tested the "UploadWP Affiliate Tab Open Plugin" with the Mystile theme and it worked perfect.

    Below is a video I created that demos the Upload Affiliate Tab Open" plugin...

    I am working on a fix for this, and have sent it off to be verified. I am a bit unsure with the code that I used on this one and want to ensure I am not getting into an area that may cause issues later. As soon as it returns with an ok, I will release it here!

    Thank you. Unfortunately it does not work. I think there is a conflict with my affiliate plugin. It is possible to have a "light" version of the plugin, that just opens links in new tab?

    Hi Savidge4,

    I have tried downloading this plugin but the link doesn't work. Has the file moved to another location or a new one been created? Am looking to add a few affiliate products to my site and have had a look at a few WP plugins but they all fall short. \do you know any good plugins?
