Heads up! This blog post hasn't been updated in over 2 years. CodePen is an ever changing place, so if this post references features, you're probably better off checking the docs. Get in touch with support if you have further questions.
We used to go to some elaborate trouble to allow you to use
target="_blank" on anchor links within our sandboxed iframe. We’re not sure if it was a behavior change in browsers or if it was something we changed over time regarding sandboxing or other security measure, but now,
target="_blank" links work as expected in previews: they open links in a new window/tab.
