It used to be that whenever I needed to go to the photohost, member map, manuals or any of the other links at the top of the page those pages would open in a new window. That was nice since if I was responding to a post I could click on a link if I needed info and then toggle back and forth. Now when I click on them they open in the same window and I loose the post I was responding to. Is anybody else experiencing that or did something change when I started using a new PC?

Yes, same here, Bill. Unless I right-click and request a new tab/window it opens in the same session. This is happening in both Chrome and Safari.

Right click lets me open in new tab or new window either one.

Depends on the browser, Opera used to automatically open in a new tab, now I have to right click, left click on open in new tab. That is ok, cause I had to do that with most of the browsers I use.. so no biggie ... :D

Well if it is a browser thing then something else is different because I am using the same browser. It's no big deal to me, but I was curious if this PC is treating things differently.

Bill, it's not your browser, I get the same thing on an Apple. Just an extra step now. :D

What I said was that "Opera used to automatically open in a new tab" but it doesn't do that anymore "now I have to right click, left click on open in new tab.".

Other browsers such as Google and Firefox and I think Opera, required that I right click to open in a new tab, at least that is how I performed that operation. Now Opera also requires the same procedure. The unknown in the equation is what has changed? Not sure if it is a function of the browser entirely or if it is something in the latest upgrade to the forum software. Simply an observation.

Yeah, I saw that. That is why I said if it is a browser thing then I have a different problem. But If everybody else is having the same thing happen then something has changed on the forum and it is no big deal I was only trying to find out if everybody else experienced it. since it looks like others have, then my question has been answered. At least I know I am not having problems with my system.

Bill, I'm not a web programmer but no stretch of the imagination. But I think you can control in the code if a link opens in a new tab or a new window. Perhaps somebody changed the code? My thought, anyway. :{_}:

Roy, yes that can be done. I do that with some of the websites I have designed. That is probably what happened. As I said though, it's no big deal. At least I know it's not a problem I have.

NERD ALERT: The old links used the "target=_blank" attribute. This has been deprecated (also considered rude) and does not pass wc3 standards -- much like links embedded in forum posts. You'll likely start noticing this behavior more on the web as other developers begin writing code to current specifications.
