Chatbox Link Glitch

Post by Metalgod542 on November 26th 2013, 9:35 pm

Hello, i am the owner of Elemental Hero Academy, found at this link http://elementalheroacademy.forumotions.in/

I am having an "issue" with the chat-box. As seen in this picture http://prntscr.com/26tx3m , there is a link and then BBCode link created using the format [url=url]Text[/url]. Now here is where the problem starts, if u click the full un-coded link it does open in a new tab, however if you click the "coded" link it opens in the chat box and replaces it as seen here http://prntscr.com/26tz54 . IS there a way to fix this, or is Forumotions unaware of the issue. Please take the time to address this as it would be appreciated. Thank you.

I've noticed that links outside your local forum get opened in a new target window, but URLs relative to your forum's URL will be opened in the current window.
I've always disliked that, too; while you can fix this with using HTML in posts by giving the link an additional 'target="_blank"', it will open in a new window - but, then again, not everyone has HTML enabled on their forums.

So, until this is resolved, your only option is to perform a right click on the link and select "Open in new Window".
But, by the way, the default behaviour of forumotion not adding blank target windows is perfectly fine.

Well the thing is both links are identical. The here is just the full link coded. So both are relative to my forum's URL. As i stated even the relative to me forum's URL links open in new tabs except when i BBCode them. This also occurs only in the chatbox. If i code a link on the forum itself it gives me no problems
