Ah, thanks! Only thing is, for whatever reason, the Main Page itself is still broken. However, I can go directly to, say, the article on Rei from a google search without any problems.

Kyoko's Melons: Currently being completely rewritten, so... if anyone liked it so far, great. I did too. But... not enough. ;)

The main page and news is provided by different software - Wordpress rather than Mediawiki - so Ornette needs to look at that separately. You can get straight to the wiki's start page from the forum menu, remember.

Now fixed also - you may need to refresh, as I did.

No... It's weird, if I chose to open Members in a separate tab, it works perfectly fine. If I stay in my tab, it goes right back to Board index.


Confirmed on the current version of Chrome. Middle-clicking (or right-click, open in new tab) any link in the top banner works as it should, left-clicking opens the link in a new tab and redirects the current one to the board index.

Also, I think I found the cause. The links are inside the <div> that is the white box, which is inside another <div> that is the site logo banner and has an inline Javascript onClick event to go to index.php. I fired up Chrome's Inspect function and breakpointed mouse click events, then clicked a link in the box. Chrome immediately stated that the banner <div>'s onClick event was fired, even though I didn't click on it but on a child element. I did some research on Stackoverflow and it seems that clicking in a child container propagates the event and fires the parent container's onClick regardless of whether the child has its own onClick or not unless the child's onClick explicitly calls stopPropagation().

I don't want to come across as a know-it-all (I'm a software dev but my area of expertise is C# webservices, not Javascript) but I hope this helps.

Thanks for that; I'll look into it. It's a clear change of behaviour in all browsers, and I think fairly recent; I assure you it would have been noticed when I added the wider area click target in response to a user request - I investigated the behaviour of overlapping click areas at that time.

Note that it only happens on some links (not the ones I use every day), which is presumably why I didn't take it seriously before; also that if you take those same links from the "Quick Links" dropdown, it then doesn't happen.

Anyway, as some links behave OK, it shouldn't be too hard for me to fix.

Hey guys, just so you know, the SSL on the wiki expired. It's made editing this evening a right pain.

^ No, it's all set. It resolved itself by the 25th when I logged back into the wiki
