Permalink links and how they work

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

Brian,

On the old version of site, when I clicked on a link, a new browser window would open of the page I clicked on.

Now when I click on a link, the SG101 page changes to the page for the link like the Yahoo groups do. Is there a way to put it back like it was before?

sometimes I like to click on a link to a band myspace, or youtube video, then while the music is playing, I go back to SG101 and keep reading. The way it is now, if I go back, the band page music stops, and it goes back to SG101.

very frustrating. Sigh

Jeff, let your browser do that for you. On Windows, you can click a link with your middle mouse button and most browsers will open it in a new tab. You can also right click on a link and usually a menu will appear where you can open in a new tab or window.

Mac browsers probably have something similar. Does anyone know?

Jeff, what browser are you using? Also, if you middle click the mouse wheel it normally opens a link in a new tab.

Firefox browser, using a lap top right now, now middle clicker

;-/

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Right click.

well I figured out how to do it by right clicking, can either open in a new window, or a new tab, but then I have to click on that tab to go to it.

yeesh. why did this change? I loved clicking on a link and it opening in a new tab automatically before.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

I changed it to piss you off.

I bet you did. ha ha ha

you know I'm no good with change damn it. Argh

Jeff(bigtikidude)

That is weird... I never had a link open in a new tab previous, from just a standard left-click. Granted 90% of the time I was opening multiple links with "middle-click" or whatever that is on my laptops.

The new software doesn't automagically link-ify plain links either. E.g.:

http://surfguitar101.com

That might be slightly more important. I can look into both issues.

wow that link-ify is a biggie,

that would be even more frustrating.

I really like that! People shouldn't be allowed to just drop links, they are too unsightly. It looks nice to create a link that looks like this.

Although we are going to see a lot of this. Your text to link here...

Unsighlty??? Says you..

I'm sure there are people that never click on a Green word, not knowing its a link.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

It is just what any actual website uses. green link = blue link. You can see the entire link when you hover your mouse if one is worries about following blind links.
