Links opening in new tabs

Post by Jobbo » Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:53 am

Thanks for making links automatically clickable, Matt. Is it possible to make them open automatically in a new tab?

Another vote for this, it would be very useful if we could get links opening in a new tab/window...

Yeah I can't get it to work - I've installed an extension for it, but it still just opens in the same window :?: I'll try again.

I prefer to have control over where links open anyway.

Ctrl + click on Windows if you want a new tab. Long press on mobile for the options to come up if you want a new tab.

Or press the mouse wheel

Yeah this software needs a custom plugin to enable it - unfortunately, I've tried a few times and it doesn't want to play ball, it still always opens in the current window.

Does this work for you now? Seems it was recently updated.

Ooh, it would be lovely if it could be made to work. I still keep clicking links on my phone, closing the tab then realising I've closed the forum tab too.

This is now working, and is set as default behaviour for all users. 8-)

FYI, you can go into your profile and turn it off, if required.

Amazing! It works. Was that using the tool I linked to above?

Edit to say Thanks Matty! This is a big improvement.

It was, the first mod didn 't work, but the new one you linked seemed to do the trick 8-)
