Following on from the original Bounty Boat Owners Website, Dan
Horner and myself (but mainly Dan! Smile   ) have produced a new Bounty
Boats website at the above address.  We've also taken over
administration of the original Yahoo E-Group as well.

We hope to expand and improve the site as we gather more
information and photographs and provide an interesting and hopefully
valuable resource for those interested in Bounty Boats, as well as, of
course, Bounty owners.  We hope you like the results, and if you have
anything to add then please do let us know.

Pete, I think you just need to put URL's in without any pseudo square brackets, like this:

http://www.bountyboats.co.uk

Thanks Strowager, It's a Mac thing I'm afraid.  As I hadn't set the window
quite big enough to take the whole link on one line, it was inserting a line
break, as it does with my normal postings - well as "normal" as my
postings get anyway! Smile

Hi Pete,

Give me your method any time. (I assume you just type in the
quote:"......
[url]http://address here[/url]
......."

I can wheel-click it and it opens in a new tab.

With Strowager's method I am forced to open a new window!  How 1990's is that? It really is time Richard deleted that part of his code from the forum!

It's funny Greg, but I much prefer Richard's Javascript code module for opening linked URL's in threads.

I'm using Opera, and by default it already opens links in a new tab, rather than a new browser window. Maybe it's a changeable browser setting ?

With other sites, when I explore linked content, I normally right click and "open in new tab" anyway, so that when I've finished I can kill the tab and automatically return to where I branched off.

I'd get very lost in eBay if I didn't adopt that approach.  (It's an old man thing, like leaving notes to myself in my pocket). Smile

edit - just tried Pete's method and Richard's in IE8, and they both open the link in a new browser window.   Confused

edit again - aha, it's the wheel click thing that you mentioned, it does open in a tab with Pete's method, and a new window with Richards Javascript.

even more Confused now !
  Smile

Happens to me in my default browser, Firefox. I'm guessing that it's Opera that is deliberately subverting the code as written by Richard, so, in effect, you're agreeing with me, the the Javascript is NOT a good thing.

In the old pre-tabbed browsing days, forcing a link to open in a new window was no bad thing, but these days I expect it to be the visitor that is in control of whether a link opens in a new window or new tab, NOT the site's author.

Really good site Pete & Dan, well done. It reminded me about the drop down beds which at one time were a brochure selling point but nowadays seem to have disappeared. Just wondering why really. I remember sleeping on one in my teenage years on a Bounty 37 mk 1 and thinking it was a good idea.

Many of them have had the drop down beds removed in order to gain
extra space in the saloon, in some cases replaced by a slide out settee
berth, but this loses the ability to leave the bed made up.  Although the
drop down  berth is rarely used in mine, I still think it's the best
arrangement, even if it does take up about a foot of space.  They're a
roomy boat in the first place so the loss of that space isn't critical.
