Support » Fixing WordPress » Link to External URL not Working in Sidebar

  • I have recently replaced an image on my sidebar with another one and the original was also set up as a link to an external URL but for some reason this does not work any more with the new image. All I get when I click on it is a small black and white circular “loading”-type icon in the middle of the page that twirls around and never stops, i.e. doesn’t open the external URL.

    The code I am using for the image and link is:

    <p style="text-align: center;">
    <a href="http://www.the-wedding-industry-awards.co.uk/find-a-supplier/london-and-south-east/make-up-artist/kristina-gasperas-make-up-artist">
    <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-452" title="2013 Wedding Industry Awards Regional Shortlist" src="http://kristinagasperas.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/2013-WIA-Regional-Shortlist-Icon.jpg" alt="" width="115" height="182" /></a></p>

    This worked perfectly for the other image and I have other links to external URLs in my sidebar and pages which work fine.

    Anyone got any ideas what could be wrong with this one?
