Continuing the discussion from Exclude TOS from getting squashed by git pulls?:
So, we did this, and find that users who click on that TOS are essentially booted from the forum.
Even if it were on the discourse site, I’d rather have the TOS/Guidelines page open in a new window anyway
What do the powers behind Discourse think about having those open in new windows at all times?
I’m pretty sure this is available, right here:
If we’re talking about the items in the hamburger menu, those don’t open in a new window, despite the setting for
default external links in new tab
In this image, the FAQ link goes to our Zendesk site, and does not open a new window.
You’re logged in - what’s your personal setting for external ilnks in new tab? How about a new account?
My setting is to open in new windows.
Same on a new user.
You would need a theme component to make that work, there is no built in way.
