From our IT guru......

No there is no option to do this with the version 3 of phpBB. I believe older version of phpBB used to do this but this has been removed in the latest version since it is considered bad practice to do this.

The reasons for this is so that the user should remain in control so any decisions as to whether a new window or tab opens rests with them. All I can suggest is that when opening a url the user can use one of the following solutions:

1. Visitors use the context-menu: users click with the right mouse on the link and select the option “Open link in a new tab/window”. If the link is opened in a new tab, the active window remains the same as it was before the click. If the link is opened in a new window, new window appears and the new window becomes the active window.

2. Visitors use the Ctrl+click-shortcut: users press the Ctrl+key and click with the left mouse button on the link. The link is automatically opened in a new tab. The active window remains the same as it was before the click. This shortcut can vary depending on the operating system and the browser implementation.

3. Visitors use the middle-click: users point the mouse pointer to the link and press the middle-click of the mouse. The link is automatically opened in a new tab. The active window remains the same as it was before the click.
