Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit CF-I-4030 You cannot read the full file name and mod version on the files tab in the website.

Files page: Middle clicking mod file links and expanded name column Merged

On the Files page of a particular mod, the legacy site supports middle-clicking on a single file to open its file page in a new tab, but when using the new site middle-clicking a mod file link just activates the auto scroll. I liked using this legacy feature to quickly compare the changelogs of multiple mod versions at once.

Also it would be wonderful if the Name column was expanded significantly, as this contains the version number of the mod file, a very useful piece of information. On the legacy site the entire file name is visible as the Name column is twice as large, perhaps the page margins were increased too much?

My eyes say thank you for the dark theme though :)

    Middle clicking works and if it doesn't work for you please contact support so they can check with you because we tested on several computers and web browsers and it opened in a new tab each time.

    As for the file extensions it's planned, please check for existing ideas on the portal as this was brought up numerous times and it's better to increase votes per idea :]
