    You know when you recieve a PM alert, you get the offer to open it in current window, or a new window...

    Well, I was just wondering whether it would be possible to offer you an "Open in new tab" option?

    Not sure how clear that is... erm...

    You know when you get the popup window saying "You have a message from.... and the Ok/cancel thing?"

    Then if you go with Ok, you get the option to open it in current window (cancel), or in a new window (ok).

    The problem is that most popup blockers are silly things.... and new windows are annoying anyway when you're using a tab system.

    The only possible problem I can see is if it would need different coding for Firefox and IE?

    Hi Tom

    Unfortunately this isn't an option available for me and yes, this would need new coding within the application. However, if you have a three button/wheel mouse, you can usually open a new tab by clicking on a link with the mouse wheel button.

    So, when you receive a notification of a new PM, and use the menu option

    Quick Links (use left button) > Private Messages (use middle mouse wheel button)

    Would that work for ya?

    I guess its quicker than having to go:

    User CP ->...

    Was just a little idea, shame it wouldnt work though.
