Why do some people's clicky links open in a new window,

and some don't? On Cafemom, of course, and is there a way to be sure yours do open in a new window?

  • or

    when you add a link, highlight it and click the link icon in the tool bar and add the url to pop up box. The default setting is now open in a new window. Usually a link that doesn't open in a new window was copied rather than added.

  • In the reply area I press a space at the end of the link to make it linkable.

    I'm in full editor mode.

  • Your computer is what opens them in a new window, not CM. You have to go into your browser settings and change it so that all links open in a new window. Or if you have a tabs bar at the top of your browser then simply use the middle mouse button to click on the link to open it in a new tab.

  • I post links on here all the time. The only answer that's accurate is Liansmommie's.
