Open off-forum links in new tab

Post by CliffnoteUSAF » Sun Oct 26, 2014 16:33

In the past any links to other websites would open in a new browser tab. But now (since the forums reopened) they open in the same tab.

Not sure if there's been any feedback leading to this change, or maybe it hasn't been addressed.
Personally, I prefer non-NJA links to be in a new tab so I can multitask easier.

I agree. Could you link an example?

Thanks! :)

GENERIC EXAMPLE OF LINK

EDIT: hmm, and now I just tried and it opened another tab. But in DRK's AARs, his links navigated to YouTube in the same tab, so you lose NJA. :-P

Ok, so here's one that replaces NJA in the same tab with the link destination >>
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=35776#p317138 (the FB link)

Whereas this one opens a new tab >>
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=35738

So I dunno.

Hm, the links work for me. If anyone else is encountering this please let me know.

I am aware of the youtube links opening in the existing tab. It's actually on my to-do list to add/make a plug-in that would show a thumbnail preview and open in a new tab upon clicking.

Thanks for all of the feedback; keep'em coming!

YouTube videos can now be embedded into forum posts and if you click the button to view directly on YouTube it will do so in a separate tab. More info through the below post.
