Using the Link Function

Post by kevb8ll » Wed Feb 11, 2009 12:44 pm

I have created a link on the forum, (from within the acp from new forums page), for a chat facility. Obviously when the user clicks on the link it opens the chat as if you are going into a forum. I couldn't see any setting on the settings for the link - but is there a way of making just this link (and NOT) the forums to be opened as a new window so the users can easily move across both.

open

forumlist_body.html

find

Code: Select all

<a class="forumlink" href="{forumrow.U_VIEWFORUM}">
replace with

Code: Select all

<a class="forumlink" href="{forumrow.U_VIEWFORUM}" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">
Save, upload, and purge the cache

All 'forums' that are links will now open in new tab/page

Thanks for this James. Can I just clarify something.

By editing this code, out of the 3 types, (Category, forum and Link) - ONLY the link will open as a new window, the category and forums won't?

I just want to be clear.

Yes, it will just open the links in a new page. All other functions of the board are not changed
