hyperlink behaviour

By default hyperlinks in H5P open to a new tab/window but is it possible to make them open on the same target?

I have a Moodle course that is made up of several H5P modules and I would like to link from module to module & the course main page. I can create links but at the moment clicking the link launches a new tab/window which doesn't make much sense.

I thnk it would be good to be able to choose the link target.

I'm moving this post to the feature request forum. Then it has a better change of being picked up by the team.

There should be "target" tab in the link popup where you can choose the target for the link. Don't you see it?

I had the same problem and solved it by adding a simple text field where I entered text and added a hyperlink in the field. This dialog has a target tab. I think that's what falcon meant. The link action has no target tab (also I think it should have).

Just add a text field to your video, where you insert a hyperlink. The link options in there has a target-tab where you can specify the link target. For better demonstration I added an example which you can download and inspect:


Thank you pheraph :)

You helped me a lot to acheive one of my goal

is there any oprion to change the text font and remove the underline of the text?

in the editing mode, the underline is not showing, but once it saved the underline is appearing

Thanks all!

Hey Sir,

I want to know if it is allowed to post an hyperlink in youtube to my own created interactive videos on h5p.

Kind regards.

Hi, sorry to resurrect an old thread but did this get solved?

I have a course with next button graphics on the presentation screens and want to keep them for consistency in the interactive video sections. However, I am unable to assign a hyperlink to the next button graphic and also specify a target - it just opens in a new window, as others have said above. I don't want to have to resort to just using a text link.

Hi Mark,

I'm afraid not, no one has picked up this project since this thread was created.


I have the same problem. Will it be solved soon?
