Links in Text Boxes not working

Recommended Posts

NearlyJen

Hey everyone, I have a teacher trying to post some links in a text box and he's doing it right but the links still aren't working. His html is attached and links are below. This page: http://arts.eastsideprep.org/resources/ This is the link that is being produces from that html, which obviously results in a 404: http://arts.eastsideprep.org/resources/"http://www.seattlesings.org/" Help? Thank you! Happy Friday! Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,

 

First, you're using an out of date version of DMS 1, the latest version is 1.1.8, you're using DMS 1.1.1. I would recommend updating or upgrading to DMS 2.x.

 

Also, upon inspection of the site you linked, it would appear that the HTML isn't valid. As you can see from the URL created via the code:

 

https://cloudup.com/c4SNzlXQb1G

https://cloudup.com/cjs7Gs5gm8m

 

This is the HTML being used - <a href="”http://www.seattlesings.org/”" target="_blank">Seattle Sings</a>

 

There are two double quotation marks, the likely cause of this is probably the fact that you're copying and pasting the code from a text editor which isn't formatting it correctly. You will probably want to use a code editor, if you're copying and pasting the code into the TextBox or just write it manually instead of copy/paste.

My record remains solid. I only ever ask for help when it is something relatively simple that I should've caught myself :( We have a complicated install with a few hundred sites, so DMS 2 is coming soon....

 

Thanks, Danny.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.
