Links in FAQs

Hello again! Another issue people seem to be having....

When someone searches the knowledge base by typing in a keyword and clicking Search, if an FAQ comes up that has a link in it, the user will click the link before clicking on the FAQ's title then clicking the link. When they click the link within the "preview" of the content of the FAQ, they get a whoops page (generated from our site).

Is this something on our end that we need to fix or is it just a quirk of Tender? Let me know if you need the exact example I'm talking about.

    Hm, can you point to a search or faq that triggers that behavior? I'm not exactly sure I follow what you're describing.

    Kyle - No problem, it's easier to see in practice than it is to explain in words.

    • Go to
    • Type in dms into the search box and click search
    • Notice the first FAQ, titled "Evaluation of the Texas High School Project - Data Management System", has 3 links in the preview of the FAQ (before you click on the title)
    • Click one of the links - takes you to either a whoops page (Firefox) or a blank page (IE) depending on what browser you're using
    • If you click on the FAQ's title then click on the links, the links work.

    My suggestions are to either make the link in the preview area non-clickable or make the links in the preview section clickable and not go to a whoops page.

    I hope that makes more sense! Thanks!

    Thanks for the heads up. Should be fixed our next deploy (we're just stripping out links in summaries for now).
