Support » Fixing WordPress » Linking problem

  • Hi,

    I’m having this linking problem and I can use some help.
    My website is

    Under each post title (like under “BBDO organiseert BBDO Connect” –, I would like to post a small phrase saying:

    “Een vacature plaatsen tegen een voordelige prijs? Meer info.”

    The “Meer info.” part has to link to

    So I added the following code to single.php:

    <small>Een vacature plaatsen tegen een voordelige prijs? <a href="//">Meer info.</a></small>

    [Moderator Note: Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button. As it stands, your code may now have been permanently damaged/corrupted by the forum’s parser.]

    However, for some reason the “Meer info” part links to “”

    So it adds “” in the beginning and “%EF%BF%BD” at the end.

    How can this be fixed? Am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Can you replicate the problem using the Twenty Eleven theme with all plugins deactivated?

    I’ll try that.

    Currently, I have this code:

    <div class="post-heading">
    <h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    <small>Een vacature plaatsen tegen een voordelige prijs? <a href=””>Meer info.</a></small>
    <br><span class="heading-author"><?php the_author(); ?></span>
    <span class="heading-date"><?php the_date(); ?></span>
    <div class="fb-like" data-send="true" data-layout="button_count" data-width="450" data-show-faces="false" data-action="recommend"></div>

    I can’t see anything obviously wrong with that posted code.

    So it has probably something to do with the plugins?

    I have the following plugins active: Google Analytics for WordPress, Facebook Comments, Gravity Forms, MailChimp, Popular Widget, Post-Plugin Library, Random Posts, SEO Auto Links & Related Posts, Popular Posts, Stats, WordPress Importer, WordPress SEO, WP Missed Schedule, WP Most Popular, WP Widget Cache.

    Try deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    Ok, thanks for the tip. I’ll give it a try and let you know the outcome.

    I’ve also posted my question on the support forum of They made the Avenue theme.

    Hi Jokes1979, you should try using the contact form on the author’s profile page for support with the theme they created. In the case of Avenue, the author’s profile page is here:

    Good luck!
