Posting errors lead to bad browsing experience November 27, 2000 12:11 PM   Subscribe

This post reminded me of a problem that I've been seeing a few times lately, people writing their links with target="_new" or some bastardized variation thereof. In our MeFi prefs we can turn window launching on and off, but some people feel the need to dictate this on their own terms, turning it into a crapshoot for the readers. Sorry if this seems petty, but it bothered me because the window kept launching really small each time. :)

On a side note, when that post showed up on the front page, clicking the link would open it in the same window. But on the detail view, it would launch the new window. Weird.

I think my rewrites of the href basically add a second directive, which the browser follows. I could be more extreme with it, and add it to every thread page as well. I'll take a look at it.
