Open issue from Agile board in same tab

Is there a setting somewhere to allow users to open issues from the Agile Boards in the same tab instead of opening a new tab?

Hi!

I'm Sergey from the Youtrack team.

On the same tab, you can open the issue view if you double click on the card itself. Here's how it looks: https://take.ms/I3eMM (screenshot). If you click on the issue link itself, it will always open in the new tab. 

P.S. if you'd like to get in touch with our support team directly for a quick answer to your question, please fill in a direct request at https://youtrack-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/requests/ We'll be happy to help.

This is really annoying, you should never force a user to open a link in a predefined way. On a link without target attribute you have every option to open it in the same tab, a new tab, window or private window. The other way around does not work. You can not override a target="_blank". If you keep it this way, there should be at least an option for the user to deactivate it.

The agile board page has two options: open a card within the same tab in a modal window as I described above or hit the link itself to open in a new tab. Both provide access to all the card data, so you can use whichever you prefer.

Yeah and do not want a modal and I do not want a new tab. Never mind, I fixed it using a uBlock Origin rule which strips out all target attributes.

Thanks for the update.

Glad to hear that you find the solution suitable for you.

@Christoph could you please tell in detail how to do that. Actually I fully agree, if something looks like a link it should behave like a link. And if I want to open a link in new tab - it should be my responsibility (I can use middle mouse button for example).

You can open the uBlock Origin settings and navigate to the tab “My filters”, there you can place a rule like “youtrack.example.com##a:remove-attr(target)” so all links on that domain will get their target attributes removed.
