That popup that comes up now when clicking an outside link HAS TO GO!!!!  That is the most annying thing I have ever seen here. 

PLEASE Get rid of that thing IMMEDITALLY.

As an added bonus, i can't even read my GP mail now.  That popup comes up when I click on a message and the "link" at the bottom doesn't work.

This also wrecks Wowhead link popups. Even if it didn't I would still hate it.

I agree!  Lose the window when clicking on links.  The links on the site are there to make it easier to get to a site.  As of now it's easier to just add my links to my favorites.

And this has totally broken mail.

Ugg was this tested before making it live?

Yeah, if this has to stay for legal reasons, can you at least make it smart enough to recognize Javascript commands and not tack your interceptor on the front of them? It totally breaks them, which makes your mail system unusable. (Why does the mail system use javascript instead of regular urls anyway?)

It'd be nice to have a whitelist too, so wowhead links can make popups again.

I agree completely with the sentiment on this thread. I may have missed a previous system warning us that there was going to be a massive overhaul so that we would have time to prepare for it.

As of now not only is this external link change causing issues with our forms and news pages, but the mail link now shows "java" in the beginning of the link and now takes us to a blank pop-up page.

I'm not particularly pleased as a paying customer. However, I'm willing to give it a couple days for Guild portal to iron out the kinks. I have been unable, thus far, to locate anything on the admin page allowing us to turn off this feature, as well as wowhead external links have been disabled. Is there something we could put in our formatting to allow those to display?

All i have to say is  that if this "feature' continues to exist I will look at moving my guild off of guildportal.

Is it because of this new 'feature' that the WoWHead powerscript stopped working?  WTF guys?


....off to file a complaint.
