"View Site" link - open in a new page

    Right now, the link at the top of the dashboard/admin page that's titled "View Site" opens up within the existing window. It would be nice it would open a new window, just in case you're checking something out and forget to right-click to open it in a new window.

    Click the right mouse button and select "Open in New Window".

    Yes, but why not make it easier?

    mozey, your method stinks. Any time a new update comes in it's extra work. I have edited the moronic all-American "Howdy" out of my admin panel like 4 times already. Why not keep this kind of thing in a language file? Why not have an admin option for opening "view site" in a new window?

    I think it is rather wasteful to have yet another query to do something as inane as open view site in a new window. I never open in a new window, and the admin panel has enough bloat already.

    Forcing a target for opening links is considered bad netiquette.

    Users can always choose to do so if they want to, as indicated by previous commentors.

    I would edit the new window bit out. This is just my personal preference, but I hate anything that opens a new window without my permission.

    This spawned another idea:

    More hooks for the admin panel! It would take care of this kind of thing with plugins rather than having to edit the code manually.

    It's not so hard to shift-click or ctrl-click on a link now is it?
