Restore "target" option in the "credits" configuration
It would be most useful to restore the "target" option in the "credits" configuration so that when the user clicks on the credit text (usually in the lower right angle of the graph), the link can be opened in a new page instead of the current one.
Here’s a small plugin that you can use that alters the click handler to simulate a HTML anchor click including a target: http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/ud795/
I do not think skipping the credits is the right solution. The Highcharts credits can easily be disabled If someone does not want to display such information. But there are some of us who would still prefer to 'give credit where credit is due'!
As suggested, a 'permanent' option such as:
would be the perfect solution.
By the way, I could not get the above suggested pugin to work!
This would really make sense and be very useful. Please add! :D
Perhaps a cleaner solution is to skip the credits altogether, and instead add a HTML label on top of your chart.
This "seems" like a simple fix. Hope it makes it
