Is there a way to make all links open in a new tab by default? I am constantly losing this page when surfing!

There is usually an option to select this in your browser that would then apply to all links. I can't remember what I did, but my mouse is set up so that if I use the scroll wheel to click (middle button) it open the link up in a new tab.

Yep, middle-click is the best way to do this as it's usually supported across the board. I use it that way a ton to open things in a new tab.

I find the same problem with this site and it's not my computer settings because a lot of sites open in a new window. However an easy solution is to use the CTRL key and press then then the mouse cursor and it'll open in a new window...but you have to remember to do that!

Middle click doesn't work like that on my mouse. And it is only this site! No problem, though. Just wondering if I missed a setting! Thanks everyone.

I know this is an older thread, but I am new, so I give me a pass ;)
This would have to be done on the admin side. PHPBB supercedes the browser settings. It can be done with a simple mod like Prime Links, or by modifying the includes/functions_content.php file directly. this would be a great feature to set, as some people don't always have the luxury of a mouse (on a tablet or smartphone for instance).

Also, any chance of getting .skp files added to the allowed extensions? It might be nice to collaborate on sketchup files if the need arises.
