So I got tired of using the boring Informations widget.

I need a good way to categorize our clickable navigation links, much like Mottie's site.

I am NOT talking about the navigation bar under the logo.

I need a good way for people to browse categories of informations on the left... so when they click on a link it opens a page with the relevent info.

I put in a library widget instead which allowed me to categorize but keeps the info restrained to it's own window... is there a way I can just past some code in that makes it open up a new window like the information widget or something? If I can just edit the target that'd be great...but not sure how to edit widgets to aim the windows when a link (article in this case) is clicked.

I'm also game to add in code like mottie's navigation on the left but I know JACK about CSS... but I can certainly edit stuff once it's in and someone shows me where to put it.

Hi CapnNoc!

Like you said, the problem with the library is it opens the target in the same window. Which isn't a good to use in the side column. If you are up for a challenge, I did post how to make your own navigation menu like I have on my Help-Site.

Please fill free to post your questions or message me. I prefer that you post your questions though, so that other that might have the same problem can benefit from your experience and also help me know where I need to improve my instructions.
