Links Opening in Separate Window?

Postby Loki2u » Aug 30th, 2017, 11:24 am

HI!

Is there a work around that can be done so that when I click on a link in someone's post, it can open in a seperate window?

The links always take me off of this page and I have to back out of them to get back to the forum. Sometimes I want to read a link later etc.

Maybe it's something on my end I can do, but on other forums I participate in....links open in seperate windows.

Any insight would be appreciated.
Cheers!

Just hold down the Ctrl key when you click the link.

Cool, I didn't know about that one :)

I usually right click and select "open in a new tab"
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.
