Adding code gets strange results.

I was trying to setup "Big Tabs" using Text, images, and Images with links. If I only use text or only images in the "Tag Contents" it seems to work fine. But If I try to use HTML and make the text or image a clickable link, I get some strange results. Here is an example I put together to demonstrate what I'm trying to do:



In this example it displays the proper text and images in the proper rotation. But the hyperlinks don't work correctly. For example, the first rotation displays "Google" but does not go anywhere if I click it. The second rotation shows the the Facebook image and the cursor changes as though you can click on it, but it  either doesn't work or when you mouse over it it shows a link to Google not face book.

This is hard to explain but when your moving you mouse around when it's NOT on the Facebook rotation, it's like the mouse still detects where the image is, like the Facebook layer is still there, just invisible until the rotation comes back around.

You can try setting it up for yourself using the info in my screenshot and I'm sure you can duplicate what I am seeing. So is there a way to use this feature with hyperlinks attached to the text and images? I would really, really love to be able to do this on my site. Thanks!

*EDIT: I see you are using this Big Tabs here: http://ocportal.com/site/commercial_support.htm
This is what I am trying to accomplish, and this also lets me know I must not be using the correct code or procedure to insert my HTML. Sorry for my ignorance, I haven't done alot of web wok in several years, and alot has changed and I don't know all the [Bracket] commands to use.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
