minor suggestion - new window for all links

Postby kev@frames » Sun Oct 12, 2008 10:17 pm

is it possible to automatically have any links posted by users made to open in a new window?

just a small point, but sometimes you can close the window on the link only to realise you have left the forum.

cheers

In order to to achieve XHTML 1.0 Strict-validation, the forum software does not force external links to open a new window.

However, holding the Ctrl key on the keyboard when clicking a link will do the job.
