That's right, your MOD solved this problem for me, and with a small adjustment links to other pages on my site outside my phpBB2 also open in the same window, which is quite nice I must say.
And well, just to say something on-topic, one thing I like about phpBB2 in general is it's simplicity.
And something I like about my phpBB2 in particular is the fact that I myself have added all the functionalities I want it to have and still managed to keep it very simple to use. There´s nothing in it that I don´t want/need/use, it's heavily modded and still so simple to use that even people with no knowledge about the use of a bulletin-board find their way around very soon. I find simplicity very important because most of my users are new to bulletin-boards and I wouldn´t like new users to get lost and scared away.
