    Hello I'm new in Umbraco and just setup a site. I have created a navigation menu using macro partial view. Everything working fine but the links: all the links in the website, navigation links or links inserted in the pages using the editor, are not working if you click on them; if you right click on them and choose 'open in a new window' they work just fine. Any help? Thanks

    Hi Eliana and welcome to the Umbraco developer forum also known as "Our" in daily speech :)

    What does the code you're using for rendering the navigation look like? If you want links to be opened in a new window when clicked you'll need to add the target attribute with a value of "_blank" in them like

    <a href="#" target="_blank">Link</a>
    

    But for a navigational purpose that does not seem user friendly to me? If it's a link for an external resource then I think it makes sense :)

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    /Jan

    Hello Jan and thanks for your reply Maybe my explanation wasn't clear :) The navigation menu renders without any problem .. the html is perfect and so are the pages The problem is when I click on any links (link pointing to pages or mailto links) they don't work .. nothing happens. If I right click on the link and choose open in a new windows the link works ... Seems like the click event on the link is not firing .. I don't get any errors but nothing happens

    Hope this is clear

    Hi Eliana

    Ok, that makes things a bit more clear - But weird issue indeed. I'm just wondering whether there is a click event placed in some javascript somewhere, which is set to prevent the default action on links which are not part of the navigation but comes from rich text or something like that maybe?

    Do the links work if you disable javascript in the browser - If so then my theory is right :)

    Cheers, Jan

    Hi Jan you are right .. there is a javascript file breaking the hyperlink! Thanks for the tip!

    I was having the exact same problem, but it is now resolved.

    My nav panel links were not working because I had created a link decorator function with e.preventDefault() very early on in the project that I forgot to remove. Of course, neither the console nor anything else indicated any errors! I removed e.preventDefault() and links began working as they should! Thanks!
