When people make links to off site website, when you open the link the new site takes over the window of the forum window wich i mostly don't want to happen.
Other then right clicking and selecting " open in new window" isn't there a way to code it so it always opens in a new window ?

It's a feature of the forum code, supposedly to "achieve XHTML 1.0 Strict-validation for the whole board" (whatever that means).

I think I may be able to tweak the code but in the meantime you can also hold down the shift key when you left click on a link to force it to open in a new window.

Fixed !! All newly created links will now appear in a new window (old links posted will have to be amended though I'm afraid).
