Description

All links should open in new window to avoid loss of any data.

History

#1 Updated by Saurabh Garg over 15 years ago

Andrea's comments:

1)After clicking on the “NASA Global Change Master Directory (GCMD))”
hyperlink, the page comes up in the same window, so when you close the window
you actually close the data repository form you were working on, and the work
you did is lost. The link should open up in a new window to avoid this blunder.

2) If the Data Repository Guide/Info Page is already open in a window because
you clicked on a heading to read about it, and then you go back to the metadata
entry form and click on another heading, the window with the Guide remains
hidden behind the repository form window, instead of it coming to the front.

1) is taken care of now - NASA link opens in a new page.

2) can be fixed by adding window.focus() to the event. I am not closing this
bug yet as I will get to it after Morpho.

  • Target version changed from 2.x.y to 2.2.0
  • Status changed from New to Closed

This is no longer and issue with the guide because we are using it inside the metacatui pulled into a modal "help" overlay
