Links on my web page not working on a persons mac

Post by bowlesj » Sat Mar 17, 2018 10:14 pm

Hi, One person who uses my web page can get to the web page from the link in the email I send to him but he is using a Mac and with both Safari and Google Chrome none of the links on my page work for him. There are basically three types of links. #1/ links to download a file, #2/ links to other websites and #3/ links to call javascript code to produce a jquery popup. I have no problems in Win-XP, Win-7 or Win-10 using FireFox or Google Chrome.
Here is the link.

I am waiting for my daughter who has a macbook pro to do these same tests.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
John Bowles

It is always best to provide a url so that we can view and try for ourselves so that a answer can be provided. It could be something as simple as a object on top of the links blocking the click! As your using script on the links maybe the browser is blocking!....but without actually seeing it hard to know and help.

I take it you are using the likes of xampp for testing? then this will explain why the links aren't working. The links you are refering to below 'InfoJam Schedule In Karaoke Rotational Format:' none of these work due to being pointed to 'local' on your machine PC and not on the server. You will need to give a absolute reference.
Local:
http://localhost/BIAB/A_Fine_Romance_RB_HL_V1.MGU

Okay, thanks. I see the problem. Sorry for bothering you. The problem is actually when I save the website page to html format. I am loading them up statically. I guess I forgot to convert them this time to the absolute address. The links to other websites do work on my XP machine even thought it does not have xampp. The fact that he has a mac distracted me from the actual problem. Normally I have the issue on my machine notifying me of the problem but I just reinstalled everything to a new drive and for some reason it still works.
