When I click “My Inbox” in the left menu it opens the section in a new browser tab. Most likely it’s a bug, as it’s annoying and I can’t see any reasoning for that. It should open the section in the current browser tab. Anyways users may click it with the middle button anytime to open it in a new tab.
Thanks for the feedback,
Thats the default behaviour for links, you can however change it in preferences → interface
Yes, I understand that for external links, but I’m referring to the “My inbox” item in the main menu:
This is the only item in the menu that opens in a new tab by default. All other items open in the same browser tab, which is inconsistent as it disrupts the navigation within the site.
Thats a bug then…we will investigate… thanks…hopefully you like the site despite that …
Absolutely! I’ve just started using it and I’m already loving it. My feedback is just to improve and polish the experience with it.
Thank you very much
Quick update on the matter. Discourse recognize it as a bug and already have a potential fix in review: FIX: Correctly intercept `<a href target="_self"` by davidtaylorhq · Pull Request #22077 · discourse/discourse · GitHub
I’ve just noticed this issue has been fixed. Now the “My Inbox” link opens in the current tab as expected. Thank you!
