external links should not open in the same page

Postby kazi » Fri Jul 10, 2009 8:55 am

I just noticed that if I click on external links, the new page will open on the same page/tab, thus diverting attention away from you this site. And though sano kura, it decreases publicity, and that cant be good. I think all external links should open in new window, by default.

If there is a way for users to code it, please let us know.

Thanks kazi. We have applied the necessary modifications. All external URLs should now be opening in new tabs. This modification is just a "dirty hack" and if you find anything wrong with opening tabs, please do report it to us.

(Since all major internet browsers now have "new tab" option, we initially left that option to the user.)

eh.. arko kura ni..private message herda there is some confusion on the new messages.. euta kura ta color nai ali contrasting chhaina.. tes maathi message chhutauna lai alternately color gareko chha.. so it gets messy.

also, I have experienced some anomalies with number of new messages displayed and the new message "count". I dont know if it was a one-time thing or consistent with other users' experence

Hmm... that IS an issue. If too many members feel the same, we shall have to do something about it. But for the time-being, we sincerely hope that you will acclimatize with the software. :)
