How about setting the board so a link opens a new tab, rather than navigating away from the forum.

Now that I know, I can ctrl-click, but it's easier if I don't have to remember.

PHPBoost is a free CMS used by FAH-Addict.
PHPBoost staff has decided to respect carefully XHTML rules from W3C. We know that this choice is sometime boring ! But it's because lot of websites don't respect this rule that users don't know CTRL+Clic or Wheel-Clic.

Sorry but FAH-Addict staff has decided to keep the PHPBoost choice because :
- XHTML (and maybe later HTML5) is a good standard
- We have to patch too much code to do it. It's too hard for patchs ...

Since I don't work with web sites or forums, I don't understand a single letter of your acronyms, but the fact I need to use Ctrl+click comes through. I guess I'll just have to remember.:\'(

I don't like this behavior either :gre ... but it's hard to go against the norm :(

More than half of the forums I use open a new tab from a link, but I have no idea what software/format/system they use (Can you tell I know nothing about forum construction or operation?). I found out about Ctrl+click when I complained about this issue on one of them a few months ago.

They don't respect the new norms ! The norms are made to improve browser compatibility. If some forums don't respect the rule it's their choice, but it contribute to the "chaos" of web pages formating (that make browsers slower, and more buggy to try to be always good)

PHPBoost team has a strong and hard decision, but, in the future, it will maybe helpful
