#33285 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Open 'View Post' in new tab when 'Post published.' or 'Post updated.'

Description

I believe it would be easier and more usable for most of the people, if the view post link on the post editor page would open in a new tab, rather than in the current tab, when the 'Post published.' and the 'Post updated.' messages pop up.

This small change could be implemented in version 4.3

Hi @LChief, thanks for the ticket.

edit-form-advanced.php is not a patch, please see Submitting a Patch tutorial on make/core.

Generally, I think we tend to avoid opening links in new tabs, there's a recent comment from the accessibility team: comment:8:ticket:31363.

I do agree with this - it will make it easier to view the changes.

Preview button opens in new tab (named target). View Post link (shown after update or publish) should not.

When viewing a post there is a toolbar link for Edit Post. Opening internal links in new tabs will result in an increasing number of tabs for the same site. Hardly user friendly, especially on mobile.

Who is publishing on mobile without the app though?
