[resolved] Link works in Safari but not in Firefox (8 posts)

    Please help! On my blog (www.portugal5senses.com) I have a Useful Links page on which I include several links to external websites. All these links work across Safari, Firefox and iPhone, with the exception of one. That one link works in Safari but not in Firefox or iPhone (where it opens a 404 Error page). Why is this and what can I do to resolve the issue?

    I don't know how those links are configured (JavaScript) - is that a plugin?, but if you compare that one to another working one, it's clearly messed up:

    <a target="_blank" "="" flights="" www.flightnetwork.com="" www.flytap.com']);"http:="" javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackevent','outbound-article','http:="" href=" onclick=">http://www.flightnetwork.com</a>
    
    <a target="_blank" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','http://www.homeaway.com']);" href="http://www.homeaway.com/">http://www.homeaway.com/</a>

    I included the links through WordPress Pages, inserting the text and then adding the hyperlink to it. Same as for the other links. Is there another way to do this that might resolve the issue?

    Now I've deleted it all again and reincluded the link - and it seems to work across platforms now. Is it working for you as well? I'm not sure what was different about this attempt...

    Yep :) - who knows about these things - looks like it got messed up someplace, but now it seems good to go.
