Hi,

 

Has anyone else noticed that if you create a url to a offsite ac.uk domain it opens the link in the same page and not a new page as is the normal behaviour for other offsite links? The same happens on apple devices the ac.uk extension opens pages in the same window instead of a new window / tab.

 

Addtionally if you manually add in the rel and target attributes, you don't get consistency on the external link icon, for example:

 

I just want to know if anyone else has encountered this?

 

Thank you

 

Paul
