Would it be possible (or is there a way for me to do it myself) so that when someone uses the [.url.] BBCode it opens the link in a new window? Our previous site was set up by default like this and it's what people are used to. Currently, when you click an external link on our guides or forums that was created using the [.url.] BBCode, it opens in the same window instead of a new window.
OK, so looking into the actual implementation of BBCode, I realize now that it's not something I can do myself b/c we don't have access to the files that parse the BBCode into HTML.

So, when I type:

it replaces the code with:
<a href="http://wikipedia.org">Wikipedia</a>

Personally, I prefer it replace the code with:
<a href="http://wikipedia.org" target="_blank">Wikipedia</a>

Since it's not fair of me to ask you to change this for everyone, any chance we could have this as an administrative option or possibly an additional BBCode to use?
additional BBCode to use?

This is something I've had planned. A new tag, something like [urlnopop]

It's all in the reflexes.
