Quote from: Arantor on August 26, 2013, 05:24:03 PMOK, let's sort this tangle out.1. Why does SMF do it? SMF has always done it, for the reason that if you're putting links in, you're almost always linking off site and if you're doing that, you kind of don't want people to leave your site, you want them to go offsite but be trivially able to come back again. This is by design.2. If you want internal links, use the iurl bbcode instead of the url bbcode. This is for 'internal URL' and won't link to a new tab/window. Again, entirely by design.3. None of this behaviour is new. SMF has done it for 10 years.4. It's always been up for debate as to what the 'proper' behaviour is and all the camps are pretty vocal about it, and the best compromise thus far has been to leave it as is, because you're given the option as to which you want out of the box.
