Modal links to external page, but it shouldn't

I’ve created a Content Area Modal that is supposed to be just some text. No links whatsoever. It should open and close, and that’s it.

However, when hovering over the content, my cursor changes into a tooltip (pointing to another page). If I click anywhere on the modal, it takes me to that page.
Also if I close the modal, it takes me to that same page.

Please advice!

Hi Ruenel,

Broken html? So far as I know there’s no “broken” html.
The whole modal area acts as a hyperlink to whatever the last link in the footer is (now it’s the terms & conditions page (algemene voorwaarden)).
This is rather specific behaviour, but certainly the modal isn’t supposed to link anywhere. It is supposed to open, show content, and close.
Hopefully I’ve clarified the issue. Please advice.

Hi @eelcomenkveld

We found that the closing tag of the terms & condition page has not been closed properly. And that is what referred to as Broken HTML.
Go to the Theme Option>Footer>Footer Content and add the closing tag to the hyperlink a tag.

Please remember that the closing tag must also match the hierarchy, for example, it should be before

instead of after.

Hope this will help.


Ouch! So simple. Sorry to bother you with this.
A big thank you!

Hi @eelcomenkveld

Great it resolved.
