Cannot Highlight/Click (5 posts)

    I cannot seem to be able to highlight any text in posts, nor click on any of the links or the like button after the page has fully loaded (there is a small window where this is possible).

    Here is a direct link to a page on my website for your delectation:

    If anyone could shed any light on this I would be extremely grateful.

    Many thanks,
    Alex

    Everything seems to be working normally for me in FF and IE. The links seem to work, and I have no problem selecting text. Did you find a solution?

    Unfortunately no, it seems that some people can do so without any problems, but neither Safari nor Firefox seem to work for me (both absolutely latest version).

    Hi,
    Also not working in chrome on linux.(the jquery files shows no errors)
    I checked your site with an html validator and a css validator and you have lots of errors, some of theme could cause js issues, check them and try to fix them and then check your site functionality again.
    Regards

    Same problem with firefox. Looking at the code of your website looks a bit scary, just after the "way ?" part, you've got the longest class= list I ever saw in my life, if the rest of the code is likewise, wow - but I don't know if it's the reason for your problem.

    Maybe the problem comes from a javascript ? It's easy to test this, you can install the firefox web developer toolbar extension, and click to deactivate all java and javascript (make sure to reactivate it after testing). If the blog works again, bingo !

    To test the script files one by one (deactivating them one by one), I usually use Adblock Plus with firefox, right-click its icon to ask to show the blockable elements, and block their exact URL one by one.

    Once again, not sure it'll help.
