I changed the way new/same window targetting is done January 9, 2003 5:24 PM   Subscribe

I changed the way new/same window targetting is done, so if you have your preferences set to "open links in a new window" and links internal to metafilter are spawning new windows, let me know and I'll fix them. Only links within posts, comments and on the front page should lead to new windows, everything else should stay the same.

Cool, thanks mathowie.

Ahh, that explains why when I hit "Preview" it's opening a new window!

Also, every old thread is coming from a flat file. If you venture into any old threads and see a weird display/missing page, let me know.

(Only on the MF side, it appears, not in Meta.)

Where at on the mefi side rushmc? I fixed the comment page. Is it only in preview?

Matt, the internal links on the side blog spaw in a new window for me. (IE6 SP1 on XP SP1)

I'm not getting anything but the logo, the menu and the textads. That is to say, no posts.

In IE 6 on Windows XP, slightly drunk.

Clicking Current Archives of the MetaTalk Index page produces an error for me
Element METATALK_LAST_VISIT is undefined in SESSION.

The error occurred in C:\metafilter sites\metatalk.metafilter.com\archived.mefi: line 40

When I click Login on the login page, the "Thanks for logging in" page is in a new window, then when I click "jump directly to the index page" it opens another new window.

This happens both with Mozilla 1.0 and IE 6.0 on XP.

(Gak. The first time I post something where I include my system I'm on my company laptop, not my Mac. :-( )
