External Links Open In New Tab

Post #1

I don't know if you are interested, but I've noticed all external links on the forum open in the same tab. Visitors can more easily be led away. If you are interested in making it so they open in a new tab here is a phpbb extension.

I love suggestions like this. You ask for a useful request AND you provide a link to the extension.

Mod added.
