How to Open Social Links in a New Tab in Divi and Extra Theme

Divi and Extra theme has a feature to add social media icons on header and footer. A user can specify social media URLs from the Theme settings page and the respective icon appears on footer or header based on the display setting specified in the Customizer.

The social media icons links, however, open in the same window and thus a user navigates away from the website after clicking the social icons. In order to avoid a visitor dropout because of the Divi and Extra theme social icons opening in the same window, the code snippet provided below can be added to the section.

Divi and Extra both have the option to insert a script tag in website head which can be done from the theme options under the Integration tab and Add code to the < head > of your blog section. It can also be done by putting the code in header.php if a child theme is used.

      Hi Eno,

      Just replace the class name in the above code from “et-social-icon” to “et_pb_member_social_links”.

      Please where did you add the code because it’s not working for me on Divi. I added the code in the header and also tried adding it in the body.
