I usually open links to work on pages using the BB plugin in a new tab in WP admin (cmd+ click). Also I always access the builder from the pages page list, not on an individual page.
However, by chance I just tried this when on an individual page - clicking the ‘launch page builder’ button. The page opened over the page and not in a new tab.
Now the problem is that I’m using ‘Tabify Edit Screen’ plugin - to make the page area more friendly for users.
When you click done/publish a page - it goes to page with “page not found”. This is due to the following being added to the end of the URL ‘//&tab=0’
Can you consider making all links from the page builder in admin automatically open in a new tab/page. I think this would be a better working experience and stop any conflicts like above. This would be great if ‘Page Builder’ link on the Pages page (when you hover over page name) also opened in new tab.)
This is the way I teach all users to use the page builder, as I found many were getting confused when it actually opened over the page they were on in the admin. However, I’d never actually used it on an individual page with the Tabify plugin until just now.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this.
