Edmondo, when you click on a link in a posting it does not open in a new window. Can this be fixed?

This is according the standards by W3C.org. If I fix this it goes against the standard but to I also don't like it.
I will think about changing this.

Hi Edmondo,

I sent you a PM about this same issue (Before I saw this post :? ) ... feel free to ignore it - you have answered it adequately here... :)

Hi Lilbees,

I am sure the forum community is looking for a fix for your question. Anyway, you can always and patiently right-click the link and simply opening it to a new tab or window. This is just a remedy until the feature is added.

I am sorry, it looks like I have to leave the link function as it was. It did not work 100%.

Here is some information about the W3C standard the forum is based on.

About W3C: http://www.w3.org/Consortium/
What does W3C say about links: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/G200.html

If you prefer to open a link in a new tab, select the link by middle-click (wheel).

- left-click to open a link in the same tab
- middle-click (wheel) the link to open a links in a new tab
- right-click the link and select open in new tab to open a link in a new tab

I hope this info helps to open a link in the preferred way.

Edmondo, thanks for posting the options... :D
At least it gives alternatives ways to post in another tab/window...
