Hyperlink inside profile page

Recommended Posts

Some time ago I read something which suggested that Groundspeak do something to hyperlinks inside a profile page.  I gathered that when you click the link they intercept the link somehow.

 

Can anyone explain what they do?  I suspect that whatever it is is causing problems with my external GSAK statistics.

 

Thanks

Interesting....  I wouldn't have thought Groundspeak could do anything to the target page when it opens in the browser after clicking the link.

 

But....

- Click on your link and it opens in new tab, the tabs on your stats page don't work

- Right click and open in new tab, and the tabs on your stats page work

- Copy the URL to a new browser tab, and they work

(Google Chrome)

In fact, the tabs work in every circumstance except directly clicking on the link.  On my PC as a local file, loaded directly into a browser by typing the URLin the address bar, right-click and load, shift-click into a new window.  It always works except when I directly click the link.

OK, we have a solution.

My son, who is something of a networking guru tells me that using target='_blank'  inherits some aspects of the parent page (in a possibly exploitable way) as described here

 

So the fix is to lose the target="_blank".

 

I though I'd pass this on to anyone who hosts their FSG stats on an external site.
