Links opening in new window

    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.
