Opening Links

Can you change your settings so that links open in a new window. It's a pain when you click on a link and it overwrites the forum.

Cheers

You can always right click and choose either to open in a new window or a new tab if you wish.
Hope that helps Derek.

Ditto - great minds I thought the same and went to look for somewhere to post a request and saw your.

It probably just needs a tick in the right box somewhere in the background

If you use Firefox you don't even need to right click and select anything :cheers

I don't think its a forum option, rather a browser setting. Could be wrong tho.

I use Firefox and have it set to open all links in a new tab but it doesn't work on here.

I think you will find it is a setting in your Admin Panel. phpBB used to have that setting as I recall

If your using Firefox just click on the link using your middle mouse button (the roller).

Even if I could find the setting (there's soooooo many more now with the new board) I wont change it cause I like it how it is :booty :mrgreen:

I don't have a wheely mouse thing on my laptop. My only annoyance is one minute I'm in camping.com.au - forget to right click to view a link, do natural thing close the link and doh camping.com.au has gone with it. :(

I use IE7 and have it set to open links in a new tab, but they now don't from here.

Ponga I used to use IE but 6 or so months ago I bit the bullet and went firefox, takes a bit of getting used to but its way so much better browser. You know when ie crashes and you close you lose where you were, firefox asks if you want to restore the session, then you have the tabs etc its excelant. I right click all my links a second nature now. I still forget that I close a tab not the window der

I think just about every browser is better than IE especially in security.
I love the speed dial feature in opera.Love not seeing popups. Love internet tabs at top of window and programs at bottom of screen.Love the spell checker plugin. Love the downloadable widget apps.

/hug opera! I know lots of people who have changed from IE to opera or firefox, but I have yet to know anyone who changed from opera or firefox to IE.

Yes I went down the Firefox road for a while but didn't really get on with it, for my simple needs theres really not much difference anyway, still have tabbed browser, programs at bottom and no-popups.

Guess it's just what you get used to, I can't even use my OH PC because he has Vista, I tried it once and found it such a PITA I never bothered to go back. I don't have much patience to sit around and try to figure out these things.
