#11816 closed Bug (invalid)

Remove whole or part of Link Target popup

Reported by: Piotr Jasiun Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: General Version:
Keywords: Cc:


  1. Open link dialog.
  2. Open "Target" tab.
  3. Select <popup window>

This is pretty old part of the Editor, especially "Dependent (Netscape)" option. We should decide to remove this option since we do not support Netscape for a while or remove whole option and save some space since nobody use popups in XXI century.

I think that whole "Target" tab is pretty useless and the checkbox for target:_blank in "Link info" would be better.

  • First of all popups are not deprecated.
  • Second you would be surprised with what sort of "old code" people write to me. It so happens that some large company had written to me about, as it later turned out, problem with popups.

Just because there are newer techniques, it doesn't mean old ones will not be used anymore. Sometimes this is because application was written many years ago, sometimes because old browsers don't handle new approaches well, sometimes because old pages may be ported from old HTML editor to CKEditor.

While I agree that popups are old, we can't think that modern and can't be too smart because reality is that we don't know what sort of old code are users have.

I'm closing this issue as invalid for now (I the future time will come for it :) ).

But do we really need option "Dependent (Netscape)"?

No we don't and i can't argue with that point. Since you have mentioned a lot removing whole popup part I recommend opening new issue (should be quick fix) or you can always do some removing and editing here :) .
