I would say they should open in a new tab! Yes that is target=new you geeks! :)


If you find a link that points to something other then a post, like a download, it's very nice to open them in new tabs. 


It's one line of JQuery!

I think that is a end user decision, you can always use the 'middle button click' (scroll) to open a link in a new tab...

Hi,

too often I forget to right-click a link to open it in a new tab/window.
So make it default or user preferenced so we stay on the forums and a new window/tab is opened.

Merged from '[Forum] open (external) links in posts in new window/tab' (idea created on 2013-02-20 08:57:09 by Statler & Waldorf), on 2014-01-24 11:49:10 by Gonçalo Borrêga

expected delivery in Q2 2018

HI Pedro.

We just started working on your idea, so I set the status to “Working on it”. We expect it to be ready during Q2. I’ll post an update once it’s done!

Thanks again for your great idea!

Cheers

Hi Pedro.


The new tab event has been implemented in the Forums, so I set the status to “Implemented".


Thanks again for your great idea!


Cheers
