Open Link in Existing Tab
Does anybody know of a way to open a clicked link in an existing (already open) tab?
I know you can open in the current tab, open in a new tab but in an existing tab I'm not too sure about.
I thought target="tab name" would do the job but no luck with that.
As a bit of background, I am working on my own database backend function and rather than opening new tabs all the time I would like to move to and refresh an existing tab.
Thanks in advance.
Anything you do is going to be quite a bit of work though. This isn't really considered a "feature" of HTML and I know there is no easy way to do it.
What about popups?
I'm just saying that if the tab was generated by java script, you could use window.opener to check a function or use the variable set to create the new tab to access functions inside that new tab.
Sure some browser may open the popup in a new window, but many will open a new tab. Just exploring options here people.
Hope this gives some ideas!
