View Full Version : Firefox not recognizing my internal website links

03-11-2011, 01:26 PM
HELP - I created a website with a CSS template. Everything works fine except the internal links backlinking to other parts of the site ONLY IN FIREFOX. I am searching and reading and do not know what the fix is.

I have tried several suggestions. This is so frustrating since it is only one browser but so many people use it.

Does anyone know? I am using Dreamweaver and just linking to pages within the site from text I have written in the content pages.

Do you have a link please?

Thank you. I was going crazy.

So what had you done wrong?

Hi, I was just wondering what it was that fixed this problem. I'm having this same issue with a website I'm designing.

Here is the link: http://bigbugs.com/redesign/services.html. The list of links on the right will not work in Firefox. It's almost like Firefox isn't even registering them as text (I can't highlight them like I can other links).

I've already run an eval on this page and everything is fine.

Please give me any assistance that you can.

Your main content is set to position: relative.
Remove it and you're fine.

Or decrease the width of mainContent. It's currently placed over you sidebar.

The "relative" was left over from something else so thanks for pointing that out.

I've been having so much trouble with this website. It's like it's possessed or something. I think the reason I'm having trouble is because I'm using templates more. I haven't gotten extremely complicated with them but they keep tripping me up.

Do you have a resource where I could learn more about templates? I looked in the help section but I really don't understand a word of it.

I don't know if there's any other way. Give it some time and see if you understand it later. If not, this might not be for you :-/
OR ditch Dreamweaver and the template system all together and use a regulat code editor.

I understand the general concept of templates. The part I don't understand is how to put templates within templates and how to get a little more dynamic with them. I don't want to give up using Dreamweaver because I'm starting to work on more complex website with many pages and I don't want to have to go back to updating a small thing in the heading or nav on every single page.

I'd use server side includes all the day over templates; http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/php-includes.php much easier to deal with. Also you can keep your .html extensions with a simple .htaccess rewrite. Worth considering I think.
