Hyperlinks

Unread postby Cervantes » Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:15 am

Hi,

With the new format when I click on a posted hyperlink it takes me away from the forum to the link site.

Can this be changed so that it automatically opens another tab instead?

I know that I can right click and do this, but I often forget.

Cheers
Andy

I understand your question, but it is not a common practice on the Web to open links in new tabs by default. This is rather intrusive for the user and makes it impossible for the user to open links in the same window.

Even easier is the use of CTRL+click to open it in a new tab.

Sorry to disappoint you...

Niels,

Thanks for the reply

Not a problem mate. I just like to check out what's been posted and then maybe reply to the post.

I'll have to remember to use the control click trick :)
