Link click counters not working for 'open in new tab'?

We noticed that link counters won’t increase if you right-click on them and select ‘open in new tab’, or if you use the middle mouse button on them.

That’s because it’s a browser function, there’s no click action to catch. AFAIK the destination page won’t see a referrer either, it’s akin to copy-pasting the URL into the address bar.

does the same issue happen for middle click or control click?

That makes sense, thanks!

It does. I included that in my post :slight_smile:
