Open in a new tab for page nav actions

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, we released a new feature allowing you to open a link in a new tab when using “Go to page…” or “Open an external website” workflow actions. Note: this feature will only work properly when the workflow is initiated as a click OR when popups are enabled in your browser. Shoutout to @zoe1 for shipping this feature!

Thanks to those who supported this idea on the Bubble ideaboard!

Learn more about this feature here: Navigation - Bubble Docs


Excellent QOL change - Thank you!


Thanks @grace.hong @zoe1 ! These quality-of-life updates mean everything! :raised_hands:


Great to finally get this, no need to rely on a plugin anymore. Thanks! :blush:

Thank you!!! Is it possible to provide users the option of opening in a new tab? See example.

you need to use a link element for that.


maybe you can go with the experimental feature and enable right click options?

How can we enable this feature?

I think its not an experimental feature sorry. Just go to workflows → add an event → interactions → Left mouse button clicked down → change to right click

Awesome! I noticed the notes/instructions on the pop up says or instead of AND.

It should be “or”! Sorry for the confusion in the original post - I edited it :slight_smile:

It should stay as “or” because:

  • if something is triggered by a click it will always work even if popups are not allowed
  • if something is not triggered by a click then it should always work as long as popups are allowed
