[Traffic Leakage] Open all links to external websites in a new browser window so avoid taking people off a Calendar Owner's website

When an offsite ticket source is specified for an event, all links (both on the event page and on the ticket buttons that appear when you hover over the posterboard/tile layouts icons) will open in the web browser, taking someone off a Calendar Owner's website. The preferred action would be to open a new window, using the HTML target parameter: target="_blank" instead of target="_self"

    Hello! Thanks for raising this idea.

    We will send it to our technical team and we'll keep you updated about the development and release of it.

    Came here to suggest this.  I'm testing Timely now and while I really like it, this is a major drawback.  I can't have customers leaving my website.  

    The current workaround I'm using is to not use the ticket link feature at all and to add my own "Buy Tickets" link in the description.  There you can set a destination window for the link.  However, that link can be easily missed and cause confusion, especially since the main tickets block would say "No ticketing info provided for this event."

    Also the "event website" link under contact details should be target="_blank"
