When posting links....

#1 Postby CajunMama » Thu Sep 20, 2007 11:38 am

Many of you may find that when you click on a link, you're redirected to the new page in the same window. Then when you close it, you find yourself having to reopen S2k. To solve that, when posting a link, use the "post reply" button to enter your info instead of replying in the quick reply box. Then when after pasting your link, hilite it and click the "URL" button. That will direct your link to a new window when someone clicks on it. It would really, really help some of us out. Thanks! :D

Thank you for sticking this. It drives me batty. I have just tried to get in the habit of right clicking the link and opening it in a new window because half the people use the tags and the other half don't. Hopefully it will catch on..... :D

I am in the habbit of just right clicking every link I come across on every site.. If you right click the link you can then select "open in new window" or "open in new tab"

Or even easier just click the link you want to open in a new tab with the scroll wheel on your mouse.

Or, one more tip (for internet explorer), hold Shift when you click the link to always open in a new window (IE).

But really, better that everyone does what CajunMama says. :wink:

Huh? You can set your mouse to do different things when you click it, mine doesn't do that and probably alot of others doesn't either. Mine is set to do the super scroll when clicked.

Well I've not changed any settings so that must be the default in FF (And has been for the 2 years + I've been using it).

FWIW, I believe W3C (the WorldWide Web Consortium) states somewhere that all links should open in the same window.

That's why the "target" attribute was deprecated in XHTML 1.0 and beyond.

had to comment here. the scroll wheel by default will fast scroll when on a page but when on a link will open in a new tab works in firefox, IE, and opera. the stupid touch pad on the lap top is a different story though.

Having gone from a Microsoft mouse to a Logitec mouse - clicking the scroll wheel works on MS mice, not on Logitec mouse. I do miss it, but I rightclick now.

And a request- snip out non relevant stuff when you quote especially graphics/pics if you can - page will load faster and it won't take up so much room. Besides - the quote thing only works a few layers deep which is why some posts during the thick of things in the Ike threads looked weird.

I actually went into my profile and turned off all pictures including avatars when the board started bogging down during Ike. It made the board much faster - and we have a very fast connection. I could still click on individual pics if I wanted to see them, but didn't have to see the same thing 16 times in replies...
