How to get links to open in new tabs?

Post by totalnewbie »

I'm running phpBB 3.3.3 and I can't for the life of me find a setting to make it open links in new tabs or new windows. I'm looking for a setting only, not code. I don't have the skills or time to learn code so if it needs a code fix, I'm out of luck, I could swear there was a setting in the admin panel that allowed you to set links in posts to open in either new windows or new tabs, but I can't seem to find it.

There's no setting for that. This is the development board for phpBB though so for further discussion and suggestions please repost on our main forum at
