    Is it possible, when you are reading a post, and someone has a link in it, to have the link open in a new window?

    This might be something Tac can change. It sure would be handy.

    interesing idea, but personally I find the BACK button to work as well or better.

    my 2 cents worth
    In this age where truth is fleeting and mass manipulation is common, the ability to detect when something doesn't make sense is a valuable one.

    It comes in very handy when you click on a link and let it load up while you can continue reading posts. It just opens another window. I have used other sites that have this.

    You can always right click on a link, then select "open in new window".

    Good info folks, thanks for helping this member as I've
    been tied up non-stop almost 20hrs a day lately.

    I believe in the EZ help forums located near the bottom of
    our main page drop down box there is info that shows the
    code for posting a link in a new window.

    SkiingFool---THANKS, that's what I will do.
    Like warpig said, I like to have another window open when the download is taking place, so I can continue viewing in this one. Sometimes it takes a while to download a site.

    P.S. My BACK button works fine also, I just don't care to wait.

    You have to use to use html tag like the example below:

    <*a href="Site url here" target=_blank>EZBOARD</a>

    Remove the * and replace "Site url here" with http://www.ezboard.com (without spaces) to make it look like:
    EZBOARD

    The key is the target=_blank.

    OR with EZCodes

    *link=www.ezboard.com newwindow]EZBOARD[/link*
    Replace the leading * with [ and the ending * with ] and you should get this:

    EZBOARD
