External link handling

Post by Nobody » Tue Jan 02, 2018 5:35 pm

Is it hard to make all external links to open in a new tab? Wouldn't hurt much also for internal links if it is impossible to do it for external ones only.
I often loose my DAMN tab by opening some link and then closing that tab.

I searched and there is an extension that does that. I installed it - give it a try.

Does anyone find this objectionable?

I sent you a PM about this a few months ago, Ken. I'm glad you finally did it :thumbup:

the last 3-months have been problematic for the bride and I. All is well now and I have the time to devote to board maintenance again - sorry for ignoring you.
