Open an "External Link" in the same windows/Browser-Tab




i use the "External Link" feature to navigate from map to map if a special objekt is clicked on. If i use the "External link" feature combined with the Public-HTML-link PRTG opens a new browser-tab each time i want to switch the map.

Is there a way that PRTG opens the new Link in the same Browser-Tab ?

Regards, More

Hi there,

Thank you very much for your contribution. No sorry, as long as you enter the public HTML it will be opened in a new window.
If possible, you could use the internal map link (the entry for the External link would look like this: map.htm?id=69113) to avoid such behavior.
