Open Links in a New Tab/Window?

#1 Post by Paulo » Wed 20 Jan 2016, 12:52 pm

Howdy,

Is it possible, when clicking on web links in the forum, to have them open in a new window/tab?

Currently clicking a link opens in the current window/tab and you move away from the forum.

I prefer to stay in the forum and go to the new tab to see the webpage and then close that tab to return to the forum topic.

Most other websites open links in a new window/tab, I'm not sure why it doesn't work here.

I was hoping it's just a small change that you can make.

Thanks in advance :D

Too late Paulo. I'm not able to change that since today (and until March).

Workaround for you:

New Window - clicking and pressing Shift
New tab - clicking and pressing Ctrl
