XF 1.4 Disable profile summary pop-up?

    Is there a way to disable the profile summary pop-up? So that when you click someone's name it just goes straight to their profile?


    Edit: I mean globally, of course.

    Curious as to why you want to disable it? As a user I'd find it rather annoying to be redirected to the profile page instead of viewing the membercard as Id have to return back to the thread I was in to carry on reading.

    Read this... Member card removal

    This is what I done. I found the membercard frustrating as well.

    I find it hugely annoying that when I want to look at someone's profile I instead get a pop-up before continuing to the profile page. Thus making it two clicks (and an annoying pop-up) to get there instead of one.
    Middle click (or ctrl-click) = open link in new tab.

    I prefer the same method that is universal in all other forum software. Didn't the Xenforo devs learn anything from the 90's? People don't like pop-ups!

    You don't have mouse3 on a tablet or mobile phone.

    I think you're the only one who has complained about this.

    Usually on a portable device you would click-hold (hold down the link) to open in new tab.

    I'm not complaining as such, I would just like the option to disable it globally. How I would like my own forum set up is entirely up to me, isn't it?

    Style Properties > Overlays and Tooltips > Enable Overlays

    That will disable all overlays, though, not just the member card.

    Cheers for the tip. Although it's only the cards I want to disable.
