Chatbox opens on site links inside the chatbox itself

Post by Guest on July 28th 2010, 4:28 am

I have a seriously annoying problem with the chatbox.. every time myself, or somebody post a link directly from the forum inside the chatbox, the link opens up directly inside the chatbox.. this is a problem for multiple reasons, I want to be able to navigate new members into specific post by linking them to it, every time I do, they notice the problem and start complaining, i tell them to right click and open the link in a separate tab or window, but they find it annoying, and quite frankly so do I. And I'm tired of being for something I have no control over fixing.

Only off site links open up in a separate tab, I would like it if the when users click the link inside the chatbox, it takes them directly to the post. simple.

Yeah. I know. I made a suggestion about the chatbox a while back and added this problem in their. I decided to make an individual topic on it hoping it is noticed.

Hi,

This issue hasn't occurred for me, do you mind if I register on the forum which is having this on, which I guess http:// electronicnetwork.all-up.com/ is by your profile?

I don't understand how this issue hasn't occurred with you when we are all using the same chatbox forumotion provided us with meaning this problem exist for all users with the chatbox.

Post a link from a topic of your site in the chatbox and the topic will open up inside the chatbox itself..

User/Operator Preferences

Post by RoNo on August 8th 2010, 10:27 pm


Hi guys... there's nothing wrong with the chatbox.

Basically... "it is what it is" Cool
That's how the FM chatbox functions.

Following the standard for opening links...

Internal Links open in the same window.
External Links open in a new window/tab.

Chatbox users that prefer it differently can:

Hold the shift key when clicking an internal link
to open it in a new window.

Click an internal link with the middle mouse button
to open it in a new tab (in the same chat window)

This isn't an issue that requires a "tech fix". Rewriting chatbox
code to alter how directories are accessed (internal linking) on
FM sites isn't warranted. User preferences/desires that differ
from how things work are better addressed in polls. Very good

Darren he is talking about when you post a link from your forum in your forum chat box.
because it is a internal link from you forum.

i already told him what to do along with rono explaining it to him as well.
i as sick of seeing all these bumps for a issue that he has already has been answered.
if he dont want to take or suggestions then get a different chat box to use from somewhere else.There are other free chat boxes you can find that offer embed codes for your sites/forums.

These is nothing wrong with that chat for the last time.
thats how forumotion chat is take it or leave it.

use link protection, tiny url,how rono has explained or just remove the htpp from the link and let your members copy the link and past to the address bar.





DRO N1nja has been issued a warning for getting snappy with and disrespectful towards a staff member/rono that was only trying to help and explian.
Thread now locked the answer and suggestions have been provided.
