JQuery code to open a link in new tab

I wanted to edit slider buttons of Sydney theme(wordpress) to have separate links for each button and I found the following JQuery code. This code works well but opens the links in the current page. Now, I want to edit this code to open the links in a new tab. How could I do it?

jQuery(function($) {

  //Define the new buttons. Delete the lines you don't need
  var button1 = '<a href="http://www.google.com" class="roll-button button-slider">Read More</a>'; //Slide 1
  var button2 = '<a href="http://www.yahoo.com" class="roll-button button-slider">Read More</a>'; //Slide 2
  var button3 = '<a href="http://example.org" class="roll-button button-slider">Button 3</a>'; //Slide 3
  var button4 = '<a href="http://example.org" class="roll-button button-slider">Button 4</a>'; //Slide 4
  var button5 = '<a href="http://example.org" class="roll-button button-slider">Button 5</a>'; //Slide 5

  //Hide the default button
  $('.slide-inner a').hide();

  //Add the new buttons. Delete the lines you don't need
  $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(1) .slide-inner').append(button1); //Slide 1
  $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(2) .slide-inner').append(button2); //Slide 2
  $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(3) .slide-inner').append(button3); //Slide 3
  $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(4) .slide-inner').append(button4); //Slide 4
  $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(5) .slide-inner').append(button5); //Slide 5
});

  • You need to set target for that.

    jQuery(function($) {
    
      //Define the new buttons. Delete the lines you don't need
      var button1 = '<a target="_blank" href="http://www.google.com" class="roll-button button-slider">Read More</a>'; //Slide 1
      var button2 = '<a target="_blank" href="http://www.yahoo.com" class="roll-button button-slider">Read More</a>'; //Slide 2
      var button3 = '<a target="_blank" href="http://example.org" class="roll-button button-slider">Button 3</a>'; //Slide 3
      var button4 = '<a target="_blank" href="http://example.org" class="roll-button button-slider">Button 4</a>'; //Slide 4
      var button5 = '<a target="_blank" href="http://example.org" class="roll-button button-slider">Button 5</a>'; //Slide 5
    
      //Hide the default button
      $('.slide-inner a').hide();
    
      //Add the new buttons. Delete the lines you don't need
      $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(1) .slide-inner').append(button1); //Slide 1
      $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(2) .slide-inner').append(button2); //Slide 2
      $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(3) .slide-inner').append(button3); //Slide 3
      $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(4) .slide-inner').append(button4); //Slide 4
      $('.slide-item:nth-of-type(5) .slide-inner').append(button5); //Slide 5
    });
