Hyperlinks

Postby Damo » Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:24 am

At the moment, when I click on a hyperlink, it opens in the current tab. Is it possible to have hyperlinks open a new tab instead? Or is it a setting that I'm missing..?

Depends on your browers i guess, in IE under internet options, in the General tab there is an area called tabs. Clicking settings will reveal a whole heap of options that should help you out.

If you don't want to dick with browser settings - in FF and IE you can click a link with the mouse wheel button (button 3) and open things in a new tab.

Or, hold the control key down and left click.

Use it often and it will become a habit.

Basically Damo the site is set to open Hyperlinks in the same tab/window. I asked about it previously and was told the same thing about using the centre button/wheel or right click >open in new tab.

Opening in a new tab would be easier, especially when you click on the link on auto pilot mode and then get lost while going through other pages etc.

I have had a look at the forum software and I am unable to find anywhere where it will enable me to change how a link opens. I beleive that it may be adjusted from the browser side of things rather than the forum side.
