    To open a link in a new tab you hold down control/command whilst clicking on the link. Pretty simple right? Or it gets coded in by the creators. Of course not coding it in means that people have the option to choose for themselves by using or not using a simple key combination.

    Now the issue with the forum is, it forces you to open a link in the same window as you already are. Not all links of course, but the front page of the forum does.

    For example:
    [​IMG]

    You're trying to open the thread by clicking the title "Technical difficulties etc". Even if you hold down any assigned key able to open it in a new tab, the tab will open while your current window also forces you to the page.

    It's just a minor thing, but usability can go up if it's adjusted. Usability is important

    I'll see if there are some settings I can tweak for this. I haven't seen anything quite yet, but I'll look.
