Issue: Links don't open in a new window.



  • Currently links in comments such as this one will navigate you away from this forum rather than opening a new tab by default.

    This isn't a huge deal, but it should be fixed when possible.



  • Yeah, I always prefer that links should open in new windows/tabs. If there's a way to configure that via the admin ifc over the web, I hope someone finds it. I do not offer to touch the NodeBB code. If you ask, I will explain what the tradeoffs would be of doing that.



  • I changed the default setting for new accounts to have external links open in a new tab but it does not appear to apply retroactively to accounts that have already been created. So everyone who already has an account will have to change it themselves.



  • Great. As this is solved I'm going to lock the thread.
