For SMF 1.1.x and SMF 2.0 Beta x

This simple mod fixes all internal SMF urls in posts/pms etc to open in the same window rather than a new window.

Alot of people either just post straight links (which get autoconverted to bbcode), don't know about [iurl][/iurl], can't be bothered or forget to use it when posting links to other smf pages on your site.
So that sometimes results in having many new tabs/windows opening for internal links when really opening in the same window is preferrable.

o Makes local links (to local smf pages) open in same window
(It detects $scripturl at the beginning of the link)
o Makes adjustment if using queryless urls.
o Works for both www. and non www. links

Any previous versions of this mod need to be uninstalled prior to installing this version.

Install the mod via the SMF Package Manager, and your done. It installs on ALL themes automatically as it only affects Source files.

There are NO theme edits required and there are NO language strings to translate.
