External links in references, open in new tab

External links in references currently open in the same tab, can they open in a new tab like the documentation areas?

Also, for external links, the small arrow has gone which I thought was useful, was that intentional?

Sorry, the arrow is while in the editor, but maybe this is useful while viewing a hub?

Hey Adam,

I’ll get it tasked to look into why external links in reference are getting opened in the same page.

Regarding the arrow, it only appears in the editor as a way for the editor to know if they placed an external link instead of a page link by mistake.

If you want the arrow to show up in the live mode too, then you can add the following CSS:

    a[target="_blank"] {
      position: relative;

   a[target="_blank"] ::after{
        content: "\f0de"; // sort-up
        font-family: 'Font Awesome 5 Free';
        font-weight: 900;
        position: absolute;
        font-size: 9px;
        transform: rotate(45deg);
        margin-left: -3px;
