Hi, would love to get our profile page links (eg the Facebook, Pinterest etc etc in the top right) opening in a new window when they are opened. It is really annoying to try to follow someone, then navigate back to the HP site without pressing back back back all the time!
Can we make them open in a new window whenever they're clicked on?
A somewhat similar request was made regarding opening links in a new window in a recent forum thread.
We deliberately do not open links in new windows.
Paul Deeds has an explanation for the reasoning in the thread linked below (the main being accessibility and usability).
Here is the links Paul refers to in that thread.

Thanks for posting this question Suzanne. I had been wondering about that myself.
And thaks for the explanation Matthew.

Here's the question: Should you have outbound links open in a new target window, or open over your hub.thoughts: I DO NOT like opening in new window because ...1. users are used to using browser back-arrow to return from links, (I think it is important to not upset a routine)2. for some systems and...

Those who have been around awhile know that I personally prefer starting Hub Challenges that coincide with calendar months. It's just easier to keep up with what day you're on. I play to write and publish 30 hubs during the month of March.If you've been contemplating joining a HubChallenge,...
