I would find very useful for the forum if any link provided by the users in their posts will have the target="_blank" auto added so the links open in new windows.
Sure, you can explicitly and manually do that yourself but instead of one click i’m forced to make two clicks
When I paste in a link to a forum post and click on it, it does open in a new window.
Can you share a link to an existing forum post which does not do this? I have never seen a link that does not open a new window when clicked.
Sure. Here a link to one of my fcc projects on codepen: https://codepen.io/sorinr/pen/EymkWr
Does it open for you in a new tab? I even disabled the addblocker for this forum.
It opens in a new window/tab for me.
Not for me. I’m on chrome the latest or so
So I am assuming when you click the link, it just takes you directly to the page of the url?
Are you using Mac, PC, tablet, or phone?
Nope. When I click the link it opens on the same window tab replacing the forum page. I’m on a PC
Close your browser, reopen and try to click on a post link again. I was able to adjust your forum account settings.
Great Job. Now its working as expected.
You can actually adjust this setting and others if you click on your profile and go to Preferences --> Interface. Under Other, there is a checkbox for Open all external links in a new tab
Thank you for your help. I’m coming from the gitter fcc rooms and wasn’t quite updated with the way the forum works.
