Broken Image Links {HELP} (22 posts)

    As of yesterday linked images on my pages are no longer linking!

    They work properly in the 'preview' version when I check if all my updates look ok but once published they no longer link.

    This is really bad timing as the links I'm currently adding are sponsor logos who expect their logos to link back to their websites as promised.

    The page in question -

    http://www.wetnosefotos.com/pet-photography-workshops/

    If you scroll down to the 'Sponsors' section you'll see all the logos that don't link even though their html code is correct -

    Please help!!

    They seem to appear fine for me. Do you have an ad blocker installed?

    I have Akismet installed to stop spam on the blog, it did actually have a plugin update yesterday. Should I turn it off for a while?

    Tried turning off it with no change.

    Any other suggestions??

    Still not working for me, I can't even right-click them. This is incredibly frustrating and my sponsors are not happy. I've tried restarting Safari and even my computer hoping it was just mine but to no avail.

    Have you tried viewing in a different browser? As I said the images are showing fine for me and included a screenshot to show it which suggests the "problem" is nothing to do with WordPress but something at your end.

    Thanks Threestyler,

    I can see all the images perfectly - however they are no active links to the sponsors websites. That's the issue I'm having.

    The links don't work in Safari or Firefox which are the only browsers I have and one of the sponsors said they're not working for him in Chrome or IE.

    That's why I'm so confused when the WordPress 'preview' actually works with clickable links and yet once published no longer does.

    All other links on the page {ie. Paypal and text links} are all working correctly, just none associated with an image.

    I misunderstood I thought the problem was the images were not showing. None of the images are clickable.

    <p><img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/bravo88889/Where.jpg"></a><br />

    Start here. Appears to have a closing </a> but no opening <a href="">

    Same here:
    <p><img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/bravo88889/RatesTerms.jpg"></a>

    Here:
    <img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/bravo88889/Sponsors.jpg"></a>

    Here:
    <img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/bravo88889/SHORT-Divider-Line.jpg"></a>

    So on and so forth.

    Thanks,

    All the images have the full coding -

    <a href="http://www.fuzzyard.com/" target="_blank"> <img src="http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/bravo88889/Fuzzyard-Logo.jpg" /></a>

    The images you selected above are not meant to be clickable - only the actual sponsor logos.

    Then you should remove the closing tags on those images. Basically you have missing and additional html tags effectively wrapping the whole section in one giant un-clickable link.

    Sample from that block but there are missing and enclosed p, br, strong tags throughout the page:

    It's also a good idea to close image tags with a />

    ie change:
    <img src="image.jpg alt="text">
    to:
    <img src="image.jpg alt="text" />

    I'm completely baffled as to why all the image links work perfectly in 'Preview' mode from the admin page, but once published . . . nothing :(

    I take it your using the visual editor? Switch to html view then remove the extra tags using my image for reference.

    Ok, I'll try what you've mentioned above and let you know how I go.

    Still no luck. I'm using the html editor as always.

    Ok I just tried it on a dev blog and the links are loading fine using this:
    http://pastebin.com/f9rCLLgS

    Example:
    http://dev.xb3.co.uk/test-page/

    If they still don't work then that suggests a wider problem with the theme. Try temporarily switching themes and then testing to confirm or not.

    Ok thank you so much!

    Looks like I'll have to get the developers of the custom theme to work on it on Monday.

    Thanks again.
