Hello, this is probably a dumb and unnecessary question, but is there a way that you could make it so when you click on a link in a post, it opens in a new window/tab? I know I probably sound lazy when I can just right-click and hit open in new tab, but it maybe more convenient if you can change that (if you can even do that).

Sorry for the dumb question,

MrMac

Did you try just middle clicking on the links? I think that will open them up in a new tab in most browsers these days, certainly Firefox 2 and IE7.

The majority of people probably prefer links to open in the same window/tab... I could make it an option, but that would require a bunch of work on my part, which is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

@ MrMac: or if you want your links to do that you need to add target="_blank" to the tags.

That is perfectly fine, don't go out of your way to do it. @Antman: That actually did work, I figured it wouldn't work because I am running Linux Ubuntu now, but thanks for the tip!
