forum clickable links

What do you want to see here? Some more categories, forums, and mods? Hmm...

forum clickable links

Post by stephanietubesocks »

is it possible to make the clickable links here automatically open in a new tab like other forums ?

I'm always forgetting to do it manually and keep losing the forum page

thanks

I've requested this in the past, too. In updated sites, we're not forced away from the site we're navigating through just to view a link's content, but opinions here seem to be stuck in the past. At least that's my opinion. I got shut down with this request by almost everyone who commented if I remember correctly.

I probably wasn't commenting, then, because I've been asking for this since before I was even part of the project. ;)

Just learn to middle-click everything. I middle-click nearly every link I encounter on the Web.

I do with known links, but generally you expect that an external link will open in a new tab as it's become the norm. Middle clicking also bypasses some pop-up issues with certain sites as well.
