External links for Instagram and facebook not working

How come it does not work when I link to Instagram and facebook through my page? All I get is my own site in a new tab.


Here is my site Read-Only: LINK
(how to share your site Read-Only link)

I’m having the same issue! Hope someone can help.

I have the same problem, did you find any solution?

I think this is an issue with the Webflow preview. In order to check if this is actually a problem, I suggest temporarily publishing the website and checking to make sure it works there. Hopefully they get around to fixing this sometime soon.

Thank you for your reply. It does not work, even when published…

Looking at your site the second time and I now see the problem.

In your FB Link Block:

You have the external URL as:

#https://www.facebook.com/evasandibergen/

Your issue is caused by having the # in front of your link. Putting a # in front of a url makes it link to the current page, and will not navigate away from your website.

To fix this all you need to do is delete # from your link, and only put https://www.facebook.com/evasandibergen/

If you want to learn more about same-page linking, you can read the Anchor tag Mozilla documentation

Oh my god, such a small but crucial detail, thank you, it worked!

No Problem. Make sure to mark my reply as the solution so others with the same issue can find it faster.

Best of luck!
