I'm successfully using CFv3.2 Redirect Plugin to go to the paypal cart.

What I now want to do is open the paypal cart in a seperate browser tab or window (_blank) but can't see where to do that.

Any advice gratefully received, especially since I think I'm missing the obvious

Hi Nick,

Redirection does what it says on the box and redirects the user to the payment gateway to make their payment. When that is complete they are redirected once again back to the page on your site that you specify.

Technically I think it's possible to open the PayPal page in a new window. It involves creating a confirmation page in the form Thank you page with a 'Confirm' button that is actually a link to the PayPal page with a target set.

Thanks Bob.

That's roughly what I thought would be the case. Not a problem

This is one of those sites that keeps growing arms and legs and it's a favour for friends on a token fixed price. I think they can do without the extra window

Again thanks for your time, much appreciated.

Nicodemus,
do you have the basic steps to redirect the form to paypal, from start to finish? Or did you find a good post that explains this?

rbc303,

I went and bought Bob's book and used the Redirect to PayPal recipe from it. Made some minor changes to suit the particular site.

Highly recommend the book if you're going to be doing much work with CF V3 and probably V4 since there's a few good reminders and introductions to basic Joomla command syntax, php and JavaScript.

Good luck.
