After February 6, this site will no longer have Facebook, Twitter, or OpenID sign-in options. Read our announcement about social media SSO support in 2.8 for more info.

Make sure you have a current, valid email address set in your profile and set a password so you can login without it. If you get locked out after that time, you can choose "Forgot Password" to fix it as long as a valid email is on your account.
Please upgrade to 2.3 here. The 2.2 and earlier branches are no longer being updated.

Make Discussion Links Open in Own Window

edited October 2015 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.3

Vanilla automatically modifies the links in discussions and comments (that users add) to add target="_blank" to the anchor tags which forces all links to open in a new page.

How do I get Vanilla to stop doing that?

I have an embedded forum and I would prefer all links open in the parent window (target="_parent") but this behavior by Vanilla won't allow me. I have tried adding to the page head using a Pocket, but the links are still opening in a new window.
