  • Forum Link

    When adding a forum link to a new or existing forum (understanding that it will be not much more than a link to another site), how do I make that link open up a new browser window rather than processing the link in the current one?

    You have to specify an html target as in

    HTML Code:
      <a href="link" target="_blank">Linktext</a>
    The _blank target will force a new browser window.
    Btw.: PHP session info is available in the new browser window.

      rrottman, I appreciate the answer, but I am not asking how to make a link open a new window. When I add a new forum, It gives me an option for a Forum Link. It only has a place to put in a URL but not a TARGET.

        There was a temporary fix for this posted a short while back.
