dashboard, stats, w, external links not working in chrome
okay, this is super weird. i clicked on ‘thelittleschremlin’ next to my avatar in this post because i wanted to make sure it linked to my blog. then i clicked on my shop page so i could again be annoyed that the link doesn’t work…but it did work. so then i went to the tab i already had my blog open in and tried clicking on the shop page, but it didn’t work. i opened a completely new tab, went to my site, and clicked on the shop page…didn’t work.
so then i noticed that the link next to my avatar opens ‘http://thelittleschremlin.wordpress.com/’, but i use ‘thelittleschremlin.com’ when i go to my site. when i set up my wordpress blog i added a url redirect in my dns settings so ‘thelittleschremlin.com’ redirects to ‘http://thelittleschremlin.wordpress.com’, and i added a url frame so ‘thelittleschremlin.com’ appears in the address bar. could this somehow be effecting my links? i have had my blog for about a month (with redirect and frame in effect) and have had no problems until today.
also, i realized that in explorer the url frame isn’t working, so it definitely seems like the link problem is related to the frame but i don’t understand why that would be and why it would take weeks for it to become a problem. and now i have a third issue: how do i fix the frame so it works in explorer?
…i think that’s everything, now you may feel free to chime into this conversation i’m having with myself :)
Which version of Chrome are you referring to?
If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.
If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these:
1. Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html
2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/
3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.
4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/
If it’s still happening, let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.
thanks for your response. to answer your questions:
i am running version 23.0.1271.95 m of chrome
i have already cleared the cache and that didn’t help
i’m not having any problems in explorer (running version 9)
third party cookies are enabled
i tried it with extensions disabled, didn’t fix it
i enabled https, didn’t fix it
…i also got feedback from another person who uses chrome and says external links weren’t working for him either.
