Ticket #32795 Public

Can't open links in new window

Just finalizing my first event (thank you for the previous help!) and my client requested that the links I created using the multi data section open up in a new window when clicked. This is normally a quick fix, but when I edited the link and saved the changes, the edits didn’t actually save. I’ve tried to create a new data type, reset cache, restart browser and the computer, but nothing fixes the issue. Every time I add target=”blank” to a hyperlink, it disappears. Anything you can do to fix this?

      OK do you have security on your site I am getting the error

      ERROR: Cookies are blocked or not supported by your browser. You must enable cookies to use WordPress.

      Now I have 10 clients who have wordpress sites and yes my browser has cookies enabled so I suggest turn off security if you have it- or if you have IP address blocking- unblock Australia

      let me know

      We have no security in place that would prevent you from accessing.

      OK I’ll have to assign this to the plugin creator.

      Not sure why I can’t log in- a bit frustrating for you and me

      without loggin in- I tested this on the demo admin site and yes you are right the target blank doesn’t hold I have let the plugin creator know about this topic

      Instead of the multi data section you could use
      myeventon>>>>settings>>>>custom meta data

      activate the first one and choose either button or multi line text box

      Multi line text box is the editor so you could add links like you do in a normal web page
      The button is just that a button which you can control to open in a new window

      it probably won’t look as nice as what is currently displayed unless you can add your own shortcodes (shortcodes will work depending on your theme)

      you’ll have to go to myeventon>>>>settings>>>>Event card data to activate and position them as well

      But also you can use the built in “learn more about this event” link which is on by default on every event

      In myeventon>>>>languages>>>>event card  you can change the learn more to Register now
      you could use multi data section for downloads and position the learn more/register now link right under it- this would keep all events standardized the register now link is always in the same place- some events in the future may need more multi data section which would move the register now option around- does this make sense you have a dedicated area for the register now
      you can also change the color of that register now by adding

      .evo_clik_row .evo_h3 {
      color: #008000;

      to myeventon>>>>styles

      but for now I will let Ashan know about this- and hopefully he can provide a solution as to how to do it

      Ok so whats happening is MDT is taxonomies in wordpress and when saving the description for taxonomies in WP all the other attributes you add get stripped out. This is done by wordpress.


      WHat you can do is activate the additional data field for MDT in eventon settings and then like above image you can enter HTML code in there.

      If you wanna send us correct wp-admin, direct link to page with MDT and FTP i can help further
