Weird Link Behavior

    I created a four-column child theme with Thematic, and now I'm experiencing some odd behavior with links in the content section. I can't blame Thematic for this behavior, but I'm really stumped here as to what is going on.

    The page that is exhibiting this odd behavior is This is a site for a trade magazine.

    In the third column, are links to magazine articles. The information about these articles are stored in a database. To generate this list, I do a database query, and then create these links. They're all created in the same loop, so the HTML for each of the six links you see has exactly the same format, and each of them look like proper HTML. Despite this, only the bottom two links are clickable.

    Can anyone think why the upper four links would not be clickable?

    Thanks, Dan

    I had the same problem today, but I was dealing with so many bugs today so I can t remember exactly what it was... I think, for me a missing ; or smomething like that in functions file caused my navigation to be as dead as yours... Try to trackback your steps in that direction... If I remember I ll post it here...

    Best of luck

  3. There is a div sitting over those links that goes across the page.

    It is caused by the class ".menu { width: 940px; }" which is in the file home-page.css on line 28.

    Try dropping in "#primary .menu { width: 140px; }" to override it and bring the width down, or you may just be able to remove it completely if you aren't using the access menu.

    Yes, exactly, that was my issue as well, when I changed the class it was all good :)

    Thanks, guys. I was thinking that it was something like that, but I just couldn't see it.
