Forum improvements?

Post by Veikko » 12 Sep 2014, 21:43

Please use this thread to talk about how these forums can be made better. I have 'lived' here many years, so maybe fresh eyes can spot the holes more easily. :)

Any comments are welcome!

Here's one: is there a way to change it so that when you click a link it pops a new tab or window instead of redirecting you from your current window? It's kinda annoying.

Yep, I've always thought that with this and the old forum actually. Other forums open a new browser window, which is much easier. Currently I have to alt click to choose to open a fresh window.

Nice to see some activity in this corner!

I'll think about changing the behavior of links. It's a bit tricky decision, because lots of people (and most guidelines) prefer that the links should open in the same window on a typical website. But with forums it may be a different thing.

Surely this is a browser preferences thing and not the forum?

Not for me least. I can switch to a different site on the same browser and the link behaviour is different.

I can set it so that every link I click opens in a new window on every website, but not specific to certain sites.

I'd just prefer to be able to click on YouTube links and for them to open separately, so I can comment on them while I'm listening to them without having to go back to the previous page, interrupting the music.

TripleJay had a good point and I've made it now that the links open in a new tab.

Try for example this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oo55vzp ... u.be&t=25s" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

However it doesn't work with existing posts at the moment (I'll see if I can change that).
