External Links open in same window

Post by muck » 01 Jan 2010 11:56

Is there any way to change this? Currently it seems that clicking on any link posted by a user will load the new site in the same window. It would be so much easier and better for this forum to have all links open in a separate window. If there is a way to change this in my user control panel to have external links open in a new window please let me know. I couldn't anything though but am hoping I missed it.. :(

That has to do with your browser, not the forum.

This is a problem for most of us. :(
A way to work around it is to press the Ctrl button and then click on the link. This will open the link in a new window.

Don't think so as all the other forums I frequent have links open in new tabs or windows.

I tried that control button and it asked me if I wanted a new window. Thanks for the tip.
