If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Both in the menu and within the posts, when I create a hard link that goes to another website, a lightbox opens. I cannot link outside my own page!
You can see an example at http://abandonfilms.com/about. Click on the vimeo link and see what happens.
I am running Coalition in basic theme mode on WordPress 3.2.1. I haven’t done anything to the CSS. I’d appreciate any help.
After playing around with it, I’ve discovered that it is only doing this with Vimeo and Youtube links. Strange. I can link out to Facebook, Twitter, and IMDb, but for some reason when I create a link to Youtube and Vimeo, it opens a lightbox and will not leave the page.
youtube links are connected to the lightbox. You can suppress this behaviour by using link decryption services like bit.ly
