problem with amazon capsules

    When I click on an image associated to an Amazon product it links to the hub that contains the capsule rather than jump to the relevant Amazon page as I would expect.

    If the capsule sits near the bottom of the page it returns the visitor to the top of the page which means they have to scroll back down the page to get back to the link. I have tried other hubs, not my own, and the same action occurs.

    Could you please fix this so that the Amazon link is associated to the image rather than a link back to the hub.

      Not exactly.

      But  I have noticed that when the web page doesn't fully load right, specifically the JavaScript code, that when clicking on certain things that make use of JavaScript using a HREF target of "#" that the web page will jump to the top of page with # appended to the URL in the address bar since the JS code couldn't  properly perform the right function.

      Sorry if this sounds like Greek to you, but it is often the cause. I have seen other posts about when clicking on certain things the page jumps up top. Same cause I would bet.

      The "Reply" button that I used to reply to your post uses this code:
      <a class="reply selected" href="#">reply</a>. The JavaScript code *should* respond to that click. When it doesn't the web page jumps to the top...

      I just looked at the code for an Amazon picture and it doesn't even have a HREF target, just an empty string:
      <a rel="nofollow" href="" class=" ">
                  <img src="" border="0" width="53" height="75" alt="Web Search Magnet">

      So this code also relies on JavaScript reacting to a click. I have not used all the proper terms when explaining this, but I don't feel like digging through my JavaScript books to be that precise.

      Usually CTRL + F5 will fix this.
