    is there anyway for links to open up in a new window by default when a link is embedded in any topic? currently they all open in the same window

    Yes, there is a way to make them open in a new window. However, having them open in the same window is a conscious decision of the forum administrators. I would recommend right-clicking and using the open in a new window feature that way.

    You can find the fix to get links to open in a new window in the FAQ thread in 'Forum Support'. I use it myself. It doesn't work for links within SitePoint, however, so you'll still need to shift+click to get those opened in a new window.
