The violet links on the left side of this page: "Main page", "BOINC pages", "Taking part in CPDN", etc. Will not allow "right click" / "open link in new tab". This is true in Windows Chrome and Opera. It would be nice to view two pages at once such as when editing a forum entry and copying data over. Thank you

Those links can't be directly opened in a new tab because the menu is written in JavaScript rather than HTML.

The long term plan of the project team is to reduce the number of CPDN customisations to the BOINC server and web code. The JavaScript menu will probably go when that happens.

As things currently stand the server upgrade process is extremely difficult and I can only recall it being undertaken a couple of times (with lots of post-upgrade problems needing to be resolved on both occasions).
