Any chance lads you could change the default to open in a new window as otherwise am constantly having to re-open the forum having closed off the link and forgetting that it doesn't.
Hi, any idea how long this will take? Pain in the censored when I want to compare 2 links side-by-side - see Cake Stop -> Rip off Dogma for an example. OP has 2 links but can only open one at a time and cannot view both links together (Windows7 has this facility) due to opening in the same window. Also keep closing it by mistake... Ta. G.
It's been deployed. To enable it, go to 'User Control Panel' > 'Board Preferences' tab and it's the bottom option ('Open external links in a new window')
Sorry lads, just another minor issue, internal links don't open in a new window, so if someone puts a link up to a Bike radar link, then it doesn't open in a new window?
I've always opened links in a new tab with a middle click on my 3 button mouse both before and after the upgrade using Firefox.

Hmmmm, the fix did work for a time, but we now seen to be back to links opening over the top of the current page.
Seems to do it for youtube too now (and yes, I've got the correct options checked in the user settings).
Apart from bike radar links don't open in a new window
Can't you just make this the default action rather than asking us to go into settings to change? It's pretty much the expected action that a forum link will open in a new tab. I shouldn't have to go rummaging around for settings to turn it on.
