You're missing my point, you have a hole in the road(browser bug in IE that causes input text to be lost). Instead of fixing the hole you're proposing building a road around the hole through a swamp that only few cars are going to be able to use.
i absolutely agree with you that fixing IE7 is more appealing than messing with phpbb. but i have about as much leverage with MS as i do with you all.
maybe you guys can submit a bug to IE8 developers?

See where I'm going? Do you think a user is going to appreciate navigation links opening new windows? That was not the default behavior in phpbb2.
well, as i recall, links in posts did open in new windows, nav links changed the current window, right?
but in either case, the composition was not lost. if you clicked back from a nav link, your work would still be there.
that is the goal, right?
maybe i misunderstand, will the manual edits cause EVERY link to open in a new window, or just links in posts? if the latter, thats what i want, and as i've said, i'd like to enable that optionally in the ACP, but you know that.
if its the former, then i don't want that in any way, regardless of how i enable it.
i don't follow what you mean here at all. who is talking about a bookmark?
It's bug that causes text in an input filed to be lost. It appears that any action that navigates away from the page will cause this. If you click a bookmark then you lose the text just like when you click a link on the page. Same bug, same problem. You're solution of fixing it with links that open in new windows doesn't address fixing it for other situations.
i understand. thx.
