Aloha all!

I've noticed something really annoying on the forum:

when you click on a link,it doesn't open it in a separate browser,that means you're leaving the forum to look at it,and when you close it,BAM,the door is closed to go back to the forum :lol: :lol:

My 2 cents for today :mrgreen:

Have a good Syncro day 8-)

That irritates me too, but I'm sure the mods can make it that it opens a new tab automatically.

Re: Links in forum - Russel - 10-18-2012 07:50 PM

It annoys me as-well. Unfortunately i dont have a clue how to remedy it. Or that may be a good thing.
Good point Alika

if you want to open a link in a new tab, either click it with the wheel button on your mouse or right click and select open in new window
try it out and tell me if it helps

Isn't this a browser problem?
Changing settings should sort it?

On the Aircooled forum it open it automatically in another window, so I think it is maybe a global setting on the forum"framework" or "structure". I know you can use the right-click to open in another window, but out of habit from the other forum I just double-click the link without thinking.

Re: Links in forum - ALIKA - 11-09-2012 07:33 PM

yes,if you click with CTRL key ,it will open in an other browser,it's just like BHM mentions it,you do it without thinking,then you close that link you just read,and the door back to the forum has slammed behind you,hahaha :-)

Thanks for feedback, Iv fixed the problem hopefully didnt create any others in the process.

U must use the URL function on the forum, else links wont be visible.

The company who made the forum released this:
Compared to phpBB3, links in phpBB2 had a slightly different behaviour: When you clicked them, they opened a new window with the requested page. This was changed in phpBB3 for a couple of reasons, but one of the most important ones was the goal to achieve XHTML 1.0 Strict-validation for the whole board.

To to overcome i used some tricky coding, here is my master piece Smile

case 'bbcode_htm':
return array(
'#<!\-\- e \-\-><a href="mailtoSad.*?)">.*?</a><!\-\- e \-\->#',
'#<!\-\- l \-\-><a (?:class="[\w-]+" )?href="(.*?)(?Sad&amp;|\?)sid=[0-9a-f]{32})?" onclick="window\.open\(this\.href\);return false;">.*?</a><!\-\- l \-\->#',
'#<!\-\- ([mw]) \-\-><a (?:class="[\w-]+" )?href="(.*?)" onclick="window\.open\(this\.href\);return false;">.*?</a><!\-\- \1 \-\->#',
'#<!\-\- s(.*?) \-\-><img src="\{SMILIES_PATH\}\/.*? \/><!\-\- s\1 \-\->#',
'#<!\-\- .*? \-\->#s',

Test with this link

Perfect thank you :!: Also thanks for the code to read, nothing like a bit of code to pass the time when bored :lol:

That might as well be some long lost text that no one has managed to deciphered yet to me.
