So, I`ve noticed that a lot of SUMO KB articles have a few external links, which opens in the same tab. Personally, I don`t like that, and I think we should set all external links in SUMO KB articles should be opened in new window/tab. As per http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-index.php?page=Text+area , that would not cause much of a work, and in my opinion that would not interfere with other TikiWiki functions.
Is this still an consideration?
John, I don't know if you're the right person to ask about this, but is there a .mozilla.com wide policy on whether or not external links should be opened in a new tab?
As per SUMOdev conf we had last year, I think David Tenser said something about some policy that won't allow us to make all external links open in new tab. On the other hand, we all agreed that it's pretty annoying when you accidentally click on an link which opens in same tab, then you have to go back, right click and open in new window. Also, I think someone mentioned that one of Mozilla websites has that rule already implemented.
Assigning to me. This can be done in the admin panel. Just need a word on the mozilla.com policy.
Who's suppose to make this design decision?
