Problem with Image Links

Posted by Ballom Nom Nom on Dec 02 2012 - 02:35 PM

In the past day or so I've noticed an odd problem with images that hold links. Whenever I click on an image with an embedded link, my popup bocker would activate and, when I told it to allow the popup, the image that contained the link would be opened in another window rather than the link itself being followed.
After I changed my settings to allow popups from BZP, however, when I now click on an image with a link, the link will be followed in a new window, but the image itself will also open again in a second window. Strangely, this only happens on my laptop (IE 9) and not my desktop (IE 7).
You can also see people talking about the issue in this blog entry. It appears DeeVee doesn't have this problem, but people like Lyichir and Chols do.


I haven't had this problem. I've tested it in all of the browsers on my laptop (IE9, Firefox, Chrome), and haven't seen a problem like this.

Huh...  Recently when I click pictures with links, normally it will open up two new tabs instead of one. 
I haven't come across anything with a new window, though.

Yep, this is a known issue with the upgrade. It should be fixed with the next release.

Hasn't happened to me, but I've seen it mentioned once.

Perhaps this JavaScript can be removed or commented out until then?
var cacheEntry = Event.cache[uid]; var element = cacheEntry.element; Event.extend(event, element); handler.call(element, event);
It's minified and merged into the main page when output so I'm not sure where it would be found, but that's the code that's getting bound to a click event on all images not once but twice. So clicking on my banner causes the image to open twice in 2 separate tabs and a third tab for the link.

How the links are opened is handled by the browser configuration. Most can be configured to use either new tabs or new windows.

This issue should be fixed now. Please let me know if you see any instances of it occurring.

I still seem to be getting double image popups.

(yeah, like right there)

Yep, still happening

So image links seem to work fine for me. The problem seems to be plain old images are clickable and sometimes open the image twice.

Oh, yeah, was testing for the wrong thing.  Whoops.
Image links seem to work for me, but the plain image double-popup is still annoying.

Is anyone still seeing the double-popup of images? I haven't been able to reproduce it.

I haven't noticed this in a while.

Alright, I'm going to go ahead and close this.
