External links from this site should open in a new tab, for example if you open a youtube video or a song file on a web page and you want to continue browsing this forum while it's playing. ok, you can open in new tab but it's remembering to do that.

No, please not. I hate it when websites think they know better than I do where a link should be opened. Simply press ctrl while clicking to open it in a new tab or shift for a new window. But please don't take this freedom of choice away by setting target=_blank.

I've looked at the above links. I didn't realise there were such risks with the suggestion. In conclusion I guess the answer is simply to remember to open in new tab if you prefer to :cool:

On some forum systems (I think Xenforo), you have an option to open links to external sites in a new tab. I can't remember what the default option is, but it's nice to have the option. I don't think phpBB 3 has this option, though I know you can edit the config files to make it default:

https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3 ... w-windows/

However, I don't think this should be enforced as some users don't like it. Xenforo is a really nice forum system, and I would like to see this forum migrated to it if possible as it gives users lots more options.
