I'm a newbee and this is probably the last thing that should be my first post;-) So much to learn!

I am very impressed with SilverStripe so far. One thing that really impresses me is the amount of valid code!

One place in the forum module puts out invalid code and I think it would be a trivial fix if I knew where to change the code. Perhaps there is a good reason for using a target _blank but i was wondering if it could instead use "; return false;"

Is that a simple fix? Could someone tell me how to do it?

I had a look at the module the the only place I could find it is in the sign up form

Allow <a href='' target='_blank'>Gravatars</a>

You can find that code (at least in trunk) in forum/code/ForumHolder.php line 80 and Forum.php line 223 but both of those locations are code for the backend. Where on the front end is it outputting the target code?
