Hi guys,

Just a thought, but I was wondering whether or not it was possible to get the links in posts to open up in a new tab. That way we can easily come back to the forum without losing our place.

Hope that makes sense?

Cheers,

Jon

Jon, I'm pretty sure this depends on how set your browser to handle external links, which browser you using?

I'm too lazy to change the settings so I always right click on the link and then select new window or tab, tell us which browser and we can have a look for the settings :D

I am using Google Chrome, mostly on my iPad. Other forums open up links in new tabs using this browser so not sure it is my end?

Normally I forget to hold and open in a new tab. If it cannot be done don't worry, it was just a minor thought.

Cheers,

Jonathan

Jonathan, I've just tried it out on iphone and as you say other forums automatically open links in new window but here you have to hold to get the option, I know the option of an app is being looked at which would definitely be an advantage but not guaranteed yet, I'l escalate this up to Admin to see if anything can be done :D

Just to let you all know that all external links posted within the forum should now open in a separate window/tab. :)

Please let us know if you continue to experience problems with any aspect of this Forum.
