Hi I have several gallery pages that have clickthrough URLs connected to my smugmug account.  When you click on the image I want a new tab to open to my smugmug page.  At the moment it is not opening in a new tab.  Can someone tell me what code I need to use to make these links open in a new tab?  Thank you!

Kindly add this snippet to Settings->Advanced->Code Injection->Header

  document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
        var slides = document.querySelectorAll(".slide [data-click-through-url]")
        for (var slides of slides) {
            slides.addEventListener('click', function(e) {
                var url = this.getAttribute("data-click-through-url");
                if (url) {
                    window.open(url, '_blank');
