How to add popup links to a message?

Hi! The miniBB is great... but I would like to know if there is a way of adding a popup window to the links on a message. I want them to open on a new window with a customized size and without the browser tools and navigation bars. I will appreciate your help!

All the best,

It's possible, but will require a lot of practical knowledge and skills... basicly, you need to modify bb_codes.php file and modify the codes for links. You may also set up a different code for pop-up link.

The question is very custom and is not related to our free support. So my free advices are over at this point.

Keep in mind that many browsers block pop up windows by default.

They do, but not for the pop-ups which are pre-defined in JavaScript, I think. Pop-up will be blocked when it opens while the page loads, for example, or any other "automatic" way. But if you click on some item, and it opens in pop-up, that does mean security belongs to you, and in most common cases, it will be opened.
