My bad...it wasn't set to Default Theme , it was pointed to the first theme we tried that didn't get rave reviews.

Paul, I'm getting sick of the way links are handled in this forum. Not sure if others feel the same way. The fact that it forces to open in a new window(my browser forces a tab rather than a window). But when you ctrl click it, or mouse 3 click it. It actually steals focus, instead of other websites behaving nice and just opening a new tab without stealing focus.

It's driving me nuts :(

Titus, have you tried setting the "Open External Links in New Window" setting in your profile to "No"? I think that setting should match your taste better.

See two weeks ago people wanted links in a new window?

You can toggle it off or on in your settings

Setting doesnt influence it. If I ctrl click a link it should open up in a new tab without stealing focus.

I don't experience the same behavior. If I click a link it opens in a new tab, which is active. But if I ctrl-click the same link it opens up in a new tab, that is not active. That's how it works in any other forum I visit and I don't see any different behavior here. I'm using Safari on OS X, and Chrome on Win7.

Testing...

(I'm of course not intending to make any kind of advertisement here ;))

/edit:
So, for me it doesn't matter whether or not I click, or ctrl+click on a link, it opens it up in a new tab with focus either way.
Win7, Firefox.
If I de-select the "open links in new window" tickbox in the board preferences, then clicking a link opens it in the same window, but Ctrl+clicking opens it up in a new tab without focus.
So, it seems that the plugin causes this behavior, and you have to deactivate it if you wanna open up tabs without having them focused.

No problem here for me. I'm fine to open stuff up in a new, focused tab. I usually wanna look at stuff that I open anyways.
Best regards,
Jonny

Same here...

... and if you have a 3 buttons mouse: middle click always open without focus, whatever the preference is ;)

Nice to know, thanks :)
I have a roccat mouse even at work, but rarely use more than the two main buttons and wheel...
The roccats are just sexier, more comfortable and super-accurate.

Actually I have a 2 buttons mouse and a wheel, but pressing the wheel is the same as middle click :-)
