Forum Hyperlinks

Would it be possible to set forum hyperlinks to automatically open in a new tab? That's generally the norm, and easier on people who frequently access the forum on phones and tablets, where a lack of mouse functions don't allow for the option of opening a hyperlink in a new tab.

Just a thought.

Re: Forum Hyperlinks

Hmm, I had a quick look at the admin control panel and user's control panel but I can't see any obvious option to make that happen.

I'll have a better look around tomorrow (it's late now, and work tomorrow)...

I'll ask ToniXX, our Admin on Unseen Servant. I know it was something he easily did when we asked about it, so I'm pretty sure it is a standard phpBB function.

Just got a message from the forum Admin.

He said he used this: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/prime_links/

Re: Forum Hyperlinks

I've installed the "Prime Links" mod--it seems to be working (remote links are now opening in a new tab).

Excellent! Thanks, WOTE!

(Every time I type "WOTE" I'm reminded of the Wode warrior from the earlier versions of Age of Empires... I guess technically you have a Gaelic past. Unless you're Aboriginal.)
