How can I add a target="_blank" property to a menu item of type MENU_LOCAL_ACTION ? I cannot do 'options' on MENU_LOCAL_TASK, MENU_DEFAULT_LOCAL_TASK, and MENU_LOCAL_ACTION items. I tried with jQuery

(function($) {
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $('.page-admin-commerce-reports-incomplete-payments .action_links li a[href]').attr({
            target: "_blank",
            title: "Opens in a new window"

But it didn't work. Thanks!


There seems to be a module for this: Menu target.

In case you need to do it programmatically, you can have a look at the source code for inspiration. As far as I see, the module adds a special class to the menu items you select, and then some JS captures the click and opens a new window:

  $('a.target-blank', context).once('target-blank', function () {
    $(this).click(function() {
      return false;

So I misspelled the class name! .action-links not .action_links My fault, the jQuery code worked fine.

You could try Menu Attributes module. It works with Drupal 8 as far as I know
