I mistakenly posted this question under the "Installation & Update Issues" category, so I am now re-posting it under "Can I do this with Lime Survey?" as originally intended. Sorry for my sloppiness.

Can I include a link to a website as part of a limesurvey question--that is, not an end URL, but, for instance, as a link that allows the survey-taker to look up some information on the linked site in order to make a more informed choice in answering a survey question? Optimally, the link would open another window, and not divert the survey-taker away from a survey.

Thanks--I've been away from survey-making for many months, and am a bit rusty!

Hi,

Yes, you can insert HTML into the question text. For a link opening in a new windows, use this:

<a href="www.example.org/" target="_blank">Click here to open website</a>

Regards
Gregor

You can also use the "Link" tool in the editor to set the target:

Thanks loads! --and, the folks for whom I create Limesurveys (on a volunteer basis!) do donate financially.
