External links - opens in new tab/window icon

Hi all,

Does anyone know if it is possible to add an ‘opens in new tab/window’ icon to the end of external links? Like so:

I used to do this with bespoke web dev but I don’t think it’s possible with Evolve.

However, I have a client specifically asking for this as an accessibility requirement.

Many thanks<


Hey Barry :slight_smile:

Well, we have the option to add a special character (omega sign) or icon (star) in the text editors in evolve, but I don’t believe we have that icon:

As I couldn’t find the icon you have indicated in Unicode you mightwant to use this one? ⧉ which you can just copy and paste into the text area. If that’s not good enough, then you can follow the instructions in this article to upload your own font set (you’d only really have to replace one of them with your chosen icon too!) and then you can use your own chosen icon.
