Default [Project Camelot Portal] Tabbed browsing

At first I liked the new portal page, until I found that it somewhat sabotages the concept of tabbed browsing; all links only work if opened directly as into the same window/frame/tab, probably a JavaScript thing - whenever you try to open a link into another browser tab, you just get the portal again there. All links also show "http://projectcamelotportal.com/#" as their target in the status bar.

I know some sites have been doing this for years, but as the new portal page is, well new, maybe this is the proper time to say that I very much dislike this behaviour. I understand that there are many people who do not care about using tabs, but there are also many who do.

Default Re: [Project Camelot Portal] Tabbed browsing

I feel the same about this Mephane. I am used to have at least 20 tabs opened in chrome. If i want to open a page from projectcamelotportal.com i want to open it in a different tab so i can get back to it later after looking around some more on the main page.

/edit: as i saw... many of the links you click on the main page opens in another tab, but the function "open in new tab" is disabled on those (not that it matters anymore).

I suppose these are set to force a new window if you are operating in a tabless setting, but at least some browsers allow to redirect these to new tabs. Since you cannot count on this behaviour, you always try to open tabs manually once you are used to it, as you never know beforehand whether a link goes to a new window or not.

But clearly, the portal is designed from a no-tabs-perspektive, which I find curious, as I'd imagine someone with the experience to do such a otherwise well-done website to be used to tabbed browsing, too.


I took a glance on the code and found, for example, this:

Code:
<a href="#" class="leftbarlinks" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('http://projectcamelotproductions.com/whistelblower-radio-hp.html','','')">WHISTLEBLOWER RADIO</a>
If they'd just automatically copy the given url into where the "#" is, it would alleviate the issue without removing the JavaScript functionality.

Hi guys,

I did not notice this due to the links automatically open new tabs for me.

I passed along your message to the site creator

Thanks

Best regards,

Tommy

Tabbed browsing working fine at my end now

FYI; Some users may need to refresh\reload the site in the browsers before the change take effect.

Thank you
