Changed External Links

December 8, 2017

For links to other websites, I used to make them open in a new tab by default. I just changed them all, so now links just go straight to the page. If people want to open them in a new tab, they can do so. It seems like it's better to give people that choice instead of making everything open new tabs when they click them.

If there are any links that really should open a new tab, I'll add

target="_blank"

back in the page, but for now, I think it's fine. I had 52 instances where I removed that little bit of code, so it slightly reduces page sizes, too :)
