The Technical Glitch

For some reason or other, everytime someone clicks on Click here to read entire post, they get the entire post, but in an entirely new window.

Which drives some people crazy. It sort of drives me crazy.

We're rummaging around, trying to discover what causes this strange phenomenon, but until we do, you're probably going to get a new window to read entire post.

One more thing. There's no need to Click there to read entire post, because this is the entire post.

You may now return to your normal pursuits.

Text below the break goes here.

this is most probably because target='_blank' was used in the anchor tag.

just remove "target='_blank'" from the code and it should work fine!

if you just click on the title/header of the post that opens the full post without opening a new screen.

No, there aren't any target tags involved. We haven't changed the template coding since the blog was first set up four years ago -- it's just decided to behave differently in the last forty-eight hours.

We have a message in to Blogger tech support; based on past performance they will probably get back to us by Labor Day. Meanwhile I'll work on it when I'm back at the office.

Meanwhile we'll struggle along as best we can.

So ... don't forget to close the window after you. Otherwise you'll clog the pipes.

Actually it seemed to change to this other way of viewing after the format change...at least, that's what happened in my experience.

Actually target='_blank' is residing in your code, you absolutely certain its not in your template code?

It's all better now.
