Open Help in a separate tab
|Assignee:||Go MAEDA||% Done:|
The help link in the top menu should launch in a new page. As it currently works if a user clicks this link they are taken to redmine.org. If they then navigate around to find their solution they will have to hit the back button numerous times before they are returned to their project page. I was trying to look into this and provide a patch but do not know ruby at all. I will keep looking into and post said patch if I figure it out. BTW - Great software.

target="_blank" potentially allows the target of the link to interact with the original site which opened the link via the
window.opener property to e.g. load a new page there, resulting in the thread of phishing, credential stealing or worse.
This can be circumvented by adding
rel="noopener" to these links. While most modern browsers now implicitly set this for any such links, some do not yet. As such, it is still a safer option to explicitly set this too. In your patch, you can set this with
... :target => '_blank', rel => 'noopener' ...
