Open internal links in the same window

by steve1200 » Tue Dec 26, 2017 3:37 am

I am new to phpBB. I installed the External Links Open in New Window and it works great. However, if I point to another phpBB page on my site, it opens in a new window too. I may be doing something wrong but my internal links start with ../ while external links start with http.

So is there a way to let internal links opening in the same window while letting external http links open in a new window?

What is the link and what is your forum? If they are on the same domain and tld it shouldn't do that. Where are you supplying this "pointer"?

Sorry I can't delete this post anymore. But I have exactly the opposite problem. Internal links should also be opened in a new window, but they do not.

It would be good, if this would also be possible with links, from the same server. Which are then internal links and not external ones.
Since the mp3 player doesn't work anymore and everything is linked now, you can't listen to the music anymore and read the text. I definitely don't want to upload mp3 as a file attachment everywhere now, and it would be a lot of work to upload everything again.

This extension works correctly. My issue was caused by making a modification that opens all links in a new window.

Here is a link to Open all links in a new window.

If you make this change, you should disable the extension.
