Is there a way (I searched - could not find anything) to use the 4ums code to open a link you created in a new browser window? That way people could easily keep where they were in the RV.NET Forums, just close the window when they were done looking at the link.
In HTML it goes like this:
A HREF="http://www.rv.net" target="_blank"
Link to RV.NET! /A
In 4UMS code I thought maybe:
[u r l=http://www.rv.net target=_blank]RV.NET[ /url]

Just Wondering....

I always right click on links and select "Open in new window". It does exactly that and the original window will be on your task bar to go back to it.

As far as putting it somehow into the 4UMS code, I doubt it but will ask just the same.

It does get me bogged down sometimes with 7-8 windows sandwiched up on my task bar though.....[emoticon]

For one, I wish the default for links were open in new window. It's much easier to check other references and work on a post without losing stuff.

Dick, bogged down with 7 or 8 windows??????


I have to get past 15 windows before I worry about memory hogging.

Dang, I was hoping that html code that Road posted would work. My msn site strips out the "target" part (as viewed with View, Source), and it doesn't open the link in a new window.

I can't post the exact code I used for source, just displays blank, but I put the appropriate "<" characters in.

If I understand the question...
When I click on a link, I first press and hold "SHIFT" and then click on the link, the link will then open in a new window.
-or-
Press "CNTL" -and- "N" at the same time and a new window will open up.

I understand the question as: "how do I write code that will automatically open in new window?" so the user can simply click it.

Ten points goes to DSR for the alternate method of opening in a new window, that of holding down your Shift key while clicking on a link
or perhaps ctrl and key N but lets not confuse the confused.... ok?

There is also a consideration of settings in Tools/Internet Options/Advanced such as:
Close unused folders and history (requires restart)
reuse windows for launching shortcuts


2oldman gets another 10 points for putting his finger on the question and that is exactly the way I put it to the man behind the curtain, "NotAdmin".

There is also right click, open in new window, IIRC.

But I still wish I didn't have to do those extra clicks. The extra clicks are also in following suggestions and negotiating back and forth with rv.net to reply too.
