Links in posts - opens in same window?

Postby stevo. » Thu Jan 15, 2009 1:01 pm

getting geeky again .... Just thought i'd mention it...

When people put a link in their posts and the user clicks on the link, it opens the linked website in the same window as the camping forum, effectively taking the user away from the camping forum.

If possible, it's better to make links "open in new window" so the user isn't directed away from the camping forum. You may be able to change that in the admin settings :cheers

That would be good. In the meantime, users who don't want to navigate away from the forum can right-click links and choose "Open in new window" or "Open in new tab".
