When Clicking on a link in a Post

Post by Mike_ » Thu May 05, 2011 8:46 am

I have run forums before so I know their is a setting for this.
When you click on a link in a post it will open in a new window
and not navigate you away from the post that you are on currently.

Could the Forum Mod look into setting that in these forums??

It would be very nice not to have to navigate back to the forums and post
you were on after clicking on a link to view a video or outside internet page

Thanks!

It's not a mod change. It's on the IT side and we dont have access to that. Use "Ctrl" and click on the link or if you mouse has a wheel press it when over the link.

The beer is probably enjoyed by less people than actually like it. -Me

I should have said Site Admin :roll:

I do right click and hit open in new tab but its just another click that has to be done kinda a pain!
and if you are on an Iphone you cant do that it navigates away from the site all together.
It would be great if the Mods could contact Site Admin and see if it could be fixed!
Its an easy fix in the CP 8) takes about one min!

Thanks again

We know it would be easy and I believe it has been asked before. Gary is the only one that knows who to contact and typically they don't have the time for our requests.

Gary has started a new job and hasn't been on here lately either.

Sorry, just not something that is going to happen very soon if ever.

Click the mouse wheel instead, it automatically opens a new tab without any extra steps.
