Yer I think your right here, I've done a hack for now but knowing quite well that will get over written on the next upgrade.

And even tho this would normally be a minor concern for normal links, links to a another app on the site really need to be in a seperate tab.

So I've had to hack that as well, so I need to get my head around writting some plug-ins and how they all work, I want to fork this one [nodebb-plugin-outside] and see what I can do with it as I think this would serve my purpose but I don't think it's working at the moment.

Do you know if anyone has had any luck with getting any of the debuggers working?

I learn faster by seeing what's going on under the hood.
