In-post links currently open in the same window which directs me away from the boards. Links should open in a new window (or tab, depending on your browser) in my opinion. This way you don't lose the thread you were on and you don't have to remember to right click and hit open in new tab/window.
It's just a small suggestion. I am aware of the other ways to do it on my end. It's just that this is the first forum in a very long time that I have been on that did not have links open in a new window/tab.
I've had this on another forum I run and I'm not changing it.
IF we force links to open in a new window there would be NO way for them to open in the same window. The only way to give users the option to choose out of all 3 options (window/same/tab) is to not force anything but the same window on click. I won't be changing it.
New window: ctrl + n
New tab: middle mouse click
Same window: click
If we forced new window, how could anyone open in the same window? Not possible.
I know Chrome and Firefox have the option to tick off the any new window opens instead in a new tab. That's how players would decide and that's how I decide. Oh well, I guess this will just be the one forum I'm on where I have to remember to do a different click. Bah.
