RESOLVED: Can't open "Hot" or "Up and Coming" Topics in a new window

alloy321 390 February 17, 2009 at 05:23 AM
Hi guys,

Before the front page was changed, I was able to see the "Hot Topics" and "Up and Coming Topics", and if I saw a thread I liked, I could right click and open it in a new window. I did this because lots of times, by the time I got into Hot Deals, I could no longer find the thread that was on the front page.

Well, it won't let me open them in a new window anymore. Am I doing something wrong? Is that just how it is now?

wave Thank you! I'm going to try that.

Edit: That worked wonderfully! I don't mind having multiple windows open... it just drives me nuts to see something on the front page, and then when I get into Hot Topics, and I can't find it! Thanks again, persian_mafia!

Its wierd in that its like IE doesnt think its a link... but it is, even the hand cursor is gone... yet when you click, it suddenly realizes its a link.

We'll look into this. If you want a workaround right now, it seems that persian_mafia's suggestion works, or you can put your mouse on the thumbs and IE recognizes that as a link.

Yay! Looks like it's been fixed! I was able to open the link in a new window/tab by right clicking. Thanks for helping!
