Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6021) Link behavior on main Documentation page has changed
Date Fri, 21 Dec 2012 13:41:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6021?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13537868#comment-13537868
] 

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-6021:
--------------------------------------

I agree that all of the links should behave the same way. That is, either 

i) they should all pop up another tab/window by default, or 

ii) they should all just bring up the linked content in the same tab.

Before fixing this JIRA, I would like to make sure that we all agree on which behavior is
best. It may turn out to be a religious question. My preference is for option (ii) because
that is how all other links on the Derby website behave.

Other opinions?

>          Issue Type: Bug

> The latest revision of the Documentation page of the Derby website (http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/index.html)
no longer has the attribute 'target="_blank"' on the links to the Latest Alpha Manuals. This
means that the latest manuals open in the same tab or window as the main documentation page
unless the user takes specific steps in the browser to open them in a different tab or window.

> The attribute is still present on the release-specific manuals, so the user experience
with the latest manuals is different both from the previous behavior and with the manuals
on the rest of the documentation page. I've gotten used to having the main documentation page
always available so that I can easily open multiple manuals at a time, but my situation may
be unusual.
> I would suggest that the 'target="_blank"' attribute be added to the Latest Alpha Manuals
links for consistency with previous practice and with the other links on the page, but I'm
happy to withdraw the suggestion if others take a different view.
> There is a small box with an arrow on each of the Latest Alpha Manuals links now, probably
a result of the 'class="external"' attribute, which indicates a link to a non-Apache web site.
This change is appropriate, and it does add a visual cue that these manuals are different
from the others.
