Open new tab vs. opening in same tab

Post by Meterpig »

Any chance ASV could be rigged up to open a link in a new tab or window vs. existing? I think that would be great.
What do you think of my quest to swap transfer cases to the venerable BW4472?

I am referring to the function when someone posts a link. Right now it takes you to the link through the same tab. Most other forums I go to open a new tab. It's keeps things better organized and I don't have to click back.

Actually, I think it is a bad idea to allow outside links at all. Oh, wait... nevermind... :muhaha: :muhaha:
