I love that the site is getting an updated look in some places and that you can get to so many places from the SB but can the ability to ctrl+click (cmd+click on Mac) get brought back to these places?

I love that the games are now more organized, but I can't ctrl+click to open in a new tab anymore. It's a minor inconvenience but still something that would be nice to have.

More importantly: I adore that we can now reach shops and such from the SB, but in that popup (both on the SB and in the users online list) you cannot open in a new tab with ctrl+click. That means if I want to go look at someone's merchant shop I have to leave the SB to do so. Before, while we could only get to a profile from the SB, it automatically opened in a new tab so your SB was still safely open if you wanted to go peek at another user's links.

There may be other places that I haven't frequented as much that have the same issue but those are the only two I've noticed so far.

I agree, especially with the control click issue. It makes it way more annoying to go to multiple shops or do multiple games/activities, and I usually just don’t do them as a result.

agreed! this issue is definitely minor, but I was displeased when it was removed. :)

This was unintentional. I have fixed it on shop and activities pages.

Thanks Pat! Now the only place I can't ctrl+click is from the user popup.

I don't know if you're still reading this Pat (probably not) but trying to ctrl+click on the shops page does a quick "popup blocked" thing in my Chrome and then instantly gives up and opens it in the same tab as if I just clicked normally. I don't even have time to see what the blocked popup was.

I think this kinda ties into this suggestion... I wish the buttons on the user pop up from when you click a name on the shoutbox or search were links instead of buttons. I usually ctrl+click those things to open a new tab, but we can't do that anymore. It's a minor inconvenience, but I've seen some other voice opinions like this as well

Bumping this up because the shops still do a weird popup thing that results in Chrome opening it in the same tab again.

Similarly, re-suggesting that we should be able to ctrl+click from the popups for users so it doesn't cause us to leave the SB when we want to see someone's shop (which would also extend into the users online page I'm guessing because it's the same popup).

Bumping once again because the user popup still doesn't allow ctrl+click (haven't checked if the shop issue mentioned in the above post is still a problem)

Bump. It was said that this was going to be changed, but it hasn't happened still.
