Code is W3C valid, and everything should be fine. But when user clicks the link nothing happens!

This link source is:

<a target="_blank" title="Download" href="">SHOUTcast Radio</a>

And you can see it in action:

  1. visit ,
  2. click upper right corner "Tune In" link
  3. click/see link SHOUTcast Radio within the popup window, or other links within the window.

Are any of your scripts hijacking the click event - inkedmn 2012-04-04 18:50 uses this html: <a onclick="javascript: navigation.set('tunein'); return false;" href="tune-in/">Tune in</a> that's something totally different - binarious 2012-04-04 18:51
@binarious: Click on the links in the dialog box that appears - Rocket Hazmat 2012-04-04 18:52
Not sure it's related, but seeing a ton of these errors in Chrome: Refused to set unsafe header "Connection"Kirk Woll 2012-04-04 18:54
In FF it appears to be making requests in a loop to other domains - Kevin Bowersox 2012-04-04 18:54
@KirkWoll that error is related to "shoutbox", I've disabled it, and problem was still ther - enloz 2012-04-04 18:55
@Rocket oh yes, my fault - binarious 2012-04-04 18:55
copied the code directly into a test page and it worked fine for me. Took me to What else is on your page - Zanrok 2012-04-04 18:56
@Zanrok On page there are many links, but none of them in dialog box are working! Outside dialog box they work - enloz 2012-04-04 18:58
@enloz, I see the problem now. It looks like you might have a conflict with whatever popup code you are using, fancybox whatever it might be. I think it's trying to open a link within another popup - Zanrok 2012-04-04 19:02
the click event goes to div .inner .tunein - any click handlers on there - binarious 2012-04-04 19:04
@binarious I updated the OPs original question to better reflect the problem and how to reproduce it. Original question was misleading, I agree - KP. 2012-04-04 19:08
@Zanrok i'ts all custom code (except jQuery - enloz 2012-04-04 19:08
@enloz ya, I am guessing one of your custom scripts might be conflicting there then. Sorry I can't track down which it is, but my original guess is still the same - Zanrok 2012-04-04 19:10


Edit this file: /script/system.js

Remove the following:

$('.popup .inner').click(function () {
    return false;

This is disabling all click events inside that popup.

Aha, beat me to it - MetalFrog 2012-04-04 19:19
Lol, so close! - Jarrett Barnett 2012-04-04 19:20


Search your script files for something like ".preventDefault()"

It's gotta be something like that, because that syntax is absolutely correct.

@inkedmn's comment is the same idea.

When I go to the links on the webpage it is downloading a pls file. It is not the link you have posted. The link you have posted works fine. Right click on the link and inspect the element. You will see

<a target="_blank" href="" title="Download listen.pls"></a>

The this will attempt to download the pls file.

If this is what was intended, then I am confused where you have the specified link at in your site.
