Discourse links not opening in new tabs

Hi All,
When I am using links other than discourse articles, it’s opening in a new tab.
But when I gave the link of the posts on discourse in one of our other articles, it opened in the same tab.
How do resolve this?
Kindly help.

Regards

Open all external links in a new tab

There is no option to open same site links in a new tab. If you need that:

  • right click (or long tap) and select open in new tab
  • if on a keyboard enabled device, hold the ctrl key when clicking

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I tried this already.

I guess the solution provided is the only option.
Is it a possibility, if we can open all links in new tab (be it external or internal) in the near future???

Discourse is a Single Page App. How would it make sense to open all links in a different tab. Even for normal sites, who wants to open all links in a new tab anyway?

If you don’t want to “lose your place” in Discourse, for internal links you can always right-click and select “Open link in new tab”. You will still be where you left off in your original tab/window. Or just right-click on your browser’s back button and select the page you want to go back to. That’s about what your possibilities are unless an option is provided in the future to open all links in a new tab.

Thanks Jim for confirming this. Really helps.

Though if you open a link in a new tab by right clicking it and pressing open in new tab/ window/ incognito window it will not say that the link had been clicked which is kind of annoying (probably a bug)

Yes, that’s the downside of right-clicking on them.
