Open Link in New Tab?

  1. Would an option 'open link in new tab' be possible, next to 'same' and 'new window'?

    Also, a way to set these options as default would be sweet (I always go for new window 'coz I don't like sending 'my readers' away and forcing them to click 'back' - I'm oh so protective of my content ;)

    (I did a search on this but couldn't find it, sorry if it has been discussed somewhere already.)

  2. AFAIK, new tab only applies to certain browsers since not all browsers use tabs.

    And I agree on the option as a default. Send it in thru feedback.

    My understanding is that the current default of "same" is proper net etiquette but I always set mine to new window - don't want to send my readers away, either :)

  3. IE6 opens a new window.
    Firefox in Options can be made to open a new tab when a 'new window' link is clicked.

    Given backwards compatibility with older browsers (because IE7 has tabs) it will stay as it is.

    Default - I very very much doubt it. But that's why it can be changed :)

  4. Ok, thx.

  5. There is an option for links though. When you add a new or or edit an old one, you'll find a tab along the right hand side labeled "Target." That's where you'll find options for your bookmarks.

    Also remember though that forcing the user to open a link in a new window does break accessability guidelines.

    As to Post and Page text, you could always just add in 'target="_blank"' to your link.

    Hope this helps.
