Hello everyone!

I've been working really hard lately to bring back the Icepets guide and it's going very well.

But now I need some feedback from all of you’ s on a particular situation that need to be adress.

This is what I need to know.

The guide will have all items with a direct shop search by clicking on the items.
There is 2 ways for this to work:

Option 1- Would it be better when clicking on the item to have the shop search appearing on a new tab? This option allows you to purchase the item or view the prices to fix your shop price and then close the tab and then you will be right back on the guide at the same spot.

Option 2- When clicking on the item, the page appear on the same tab, you still can purchase or view the prices but you will need to use the back button to go back to where you were situated on the guide page.

Everyone who answers this Poll will receive a gift in a very near future.

Thank you in advance.

Presumably doing a shop search would lead into more pages after (purchase, inventory, etc), requiring multiple back clicks to return to the guide, so a new tab would be easiest to ensure getting back to the guide is a breeze. If you're done with the guide, it's just a click and it's gone, so it's not a big deal to have that extra tab.

A best practice of web design is to set all external links to open in a new tab. This makes it more likely for the user to return and explore your site more. Although the guide is a bit different since it's truly advertising this site, I would continue to follow those best practices, especially since it's what I assume people expect to happen, even if they're not completely aware of it.

I think a new tab is better as well. This way, you can get back to the guide with much greater ease.

Thanks for all your hard work, by the way!!

I think having links or opening in a new tab would be best. You have a really informative guide and I for one would be using it constantly so always having it up would be more beneficial in my opinion.

Personally, I tend to ctrl+click most links to have them show up in a different tab in the first place. So I don't really have an exact preference here, however, is it possible to make it so that it doesn't automatically switch to that new tab?

I'd prefer to be able to stay on the guide and click multiple links and then be able to page through them manually.

I agree w/ Nati-- I like when things open to a new tab, but in the background.

I think new tabs are better because you can still do other things in your original tab then

A new tab is definitely better.

New tab, definitely. Sites that go to the new page on the same tab irritate me, and I give up on using them or choose "open in a new tab" if possible with the mouse, which is a bit more work.
