Link to external site in storyline opening in same window

Nov 10, 2021

I have uploaded storyline files into Moodle.   Many of the files have links to external websites in them.  They are set in Storyline to open in a new window.    It works fine in Review 360 however once loaded into Moodle, the links open in the same window and there is no way for the learner to return to the course without restarting.    Any suggestions?

Sorry you've hit this snag! I'd like to gather a couple more clues so I can help get to the bottom of this:

  • Do you see this behavior in all browsers? Chrome, Firefox, and Edge?
  • Do you have an Open URL/file trigger set to open in a new browser window?

If you could share your file, I'd be happy to test things on my end! You can share it in this discussion or privately here. I'm staying tuned for your response!
