    Absolute link issue

    pappyko Community Member

      I know this is a really easy concept which is why I am so frustrated. I cannot get my link in my nav to go to an external page! I've been reading a ton about how to fix this problem and it seems the issue for everyone was to add http:// in front..... the thing is I've done this!!!!

       

       

      This is what my code looks like:

       

      <li><a href="http://www.allypapko.com/blog/" title="Photo Blog" target="_blank">Photo BLOG</a></li>

       

       

      I've actually gone crazy enough and have tried every way you could thing of to write a web url out... with "www", without, end a slash, don't end in a slash, end in just /blog, https:// ......everything!

       

       

      My website is http://allypapko.com

       

      The absolute link it "Photo Blog" in my navigation menu.

       

      The external site I am trying to link it to is http://allypapko.com/blog

       

       

      What's happening is that when I click the absolute link, "Photo Blog", this shows up in the address bar:

      http://allypapko.com/#http://www.allypapko.com/blog/

       

      It never leaves my site or opens a new a window. I know I have included " target="_blank" in my code but I have tried without it to as well as pretty much all the other options you have to choose from.

       

       

       

      I don't think it matters but http://allypapko.com I made with DW and http://allypapko.com/blog is made with WP.

       

      Just because I have no idea where the issue is coming from my full nav code is:

      <nav>

      <ul>

      <li class="active"><a class="show_sub" href="index.html">photography</a>

      <ul class="submenu">

      <li><a href="index-1.html">engagement</a></li>

      <li><a href="index-2.html">portrait</a></li>

      <li><a href="index-4.html">wedding</a></li>

      </ul>

      </li>

      <li><a href="index-9.html">design</a> </li>

      <li><a href="index-3.html">personal</a></li>

      <li><a href="index-8.html">about me</a></li>

      <li><a href="index-6.html">resume</a> </li>

      <li><a href="index-7.html">contact me</a></li>

      <li><a href="http://www.allypapko.com/blog/" title="Photo Blog" target="_blank">Photo Blog</a></li>

      </ul>

      </nav>

       

      Any help on this would be great, I've looked long and hard enough to find out why this is happening! I'm using cs6 right now.
