According to the guys at phpbb the reason for it not being the default, has to do with xml 1.0 strict validation. I think though that they went ott by making it standard for posted links.

I'm not sure but I think that the links in a new tab may not be working for every new use of the URL tag, can you guys start posting links to this thread and commenting on whether or not the links open in a new browser tab? Thanks in advance :)

I think I just worked it out, if you use the URL bbcode, it will open the link in a new browser tab for everyone, if however, you rely on phpbb to change a non-tagged url to a clickable link, the resultant link will behave as they always have. :P

All 3 of willows links in the posting I tried all opened in the current tab, I don't think it's a big thing normally I middle click links to force them to open in a new tab. Sometimes I forget and end up spending hours on one of the links from this site. Usually then I spend the next day at work looking like this :shock: "need coffee".
One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know", Alice answered. "Then", said the cat, "It doesn't matter.”

The "youtubebig" tag has been added to satisfy this request, as such I'm locking this topic :) Image
