Blog links don't' work (re-report)

Sat Jul 08, 2017 11:54 pm

Last month I reported that the blog links don't work on the right hand side under Win10/Chrome

The query was acknowledged as being valid and that it was being looked at but the topic was closed for some reason which I don't understand

I'm re-raising it as a problem as it makes blog navigation unusable

I checked on my Pi3 and they don't work in Chromium either

If you mean the link on the right of this page
https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/
then they don't work for anyone. All the links apart from the last three are linked to

Both links work fine for me. Most likely the OP Windows machine is screwed up. I am using the latest version of Chrome in MacOS High Sierra.

@broe23,Heater
I'd recommend reading a post before answering.

And yes, all the links pointing to articles on the blog site are broken, and that is true on every page. Somebody at the Foundation should really care about it. It's a bit embarrassing if you want to teach programming and can't fix your own website.

gkreidl,

That's an excellent suggestion. Thanks!

Now, I still don't know what blog links are under discussion. As in "...blog links don't work on the right hand side...". On this page, for example, on the right hand side I see info about the poster next to each post: "Posts", "Joined", and some times a button that gets me to a private messaging page or sometimes facebook etc. Nothing about blogs.

Or, as stubright wrote: "If you mean the link on the right of this page
https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/" Then I don't see any blog links on the page at that link either.

What am I missing here? Is there an example?

I've tweeted a link to this thread to @Raspberry_Pi as that's where the blogging folks hang out.

rpdom,

Thanks.

Well blow me down. When I visited that page there were no links on the right hand side.

Why, because I have the raspi pages zoomed up to 150% so that I can read them easily on this Surface Pro screen. Turns out that after a 125% zoom those links conveniently disappear.

Yes, I reported it on to the we team as soon as I found out about it - I'll remind them tomorrow. Not sure why it hasn't been fixed.

This seems to be taking a very long time to fix (I'm no web dev but I'd thought it was a simple thing to sort out)
