Links open in existing window

Postby Hebden » Thu Apr 16, 2009 9:51 am

Hi All,

Not sure if this is just me but before the site upgrades links in posts opened in a whole new browser when clicked. Now they open in the existing browser and thus take me away from BNA. I usually just right click and "open in new tab" but didn't used to have to. It has to do with the default "target" tag for the links added to posts. I am sure you can make a global change somewhere.

Cheers,
Mark

Thanks inp, I wouldn't have thought a code change would have been needed at least not a time consuming one. Looks like pretty shiny forum software to me.

Oh well, guess they get to it when they get to it.

That's about it Hebden, killing spambots is the biggie ATM.
