Some Ghost documentation links don't work

As a new user, I’ve been reading through the online Ghost documentation to get a sense of what Ghost can do. One frustration is that many of the links on the documentation pages don’t seem to work. Meaning that when I click on them, nothing happens. When I right-click, I get a menu that does not include the usual “open” options. Instead I see the menu that I get when I click on regular text, with “Back”, “Forward”, etc.

I’ve tried this in both Chrome and IE and get the same results in both.

For example, on this page: Themes - Data Helper - Navigation, in the “Description” section, there’s a link to “preset navigation”. Clicking on it does nothing.

Looking at the page content using the Chrome debugger, I see:

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">preset template</a>

I think that should work … but it does not.

I’ve run into the the same problem with other documentation links – some work, and some don’t. I’ll keep an eye out to see if there’s a pattern.

(BTW, I think the documentation in general looks very thorough and well written.)

Never mind. I just noticed the “API v2” in the top right-hand corner of the documentation pages. And when I change it to “API V3 (latest)”, the navigation links work properly.

Glad you got it working @mhl! However you did expose a bug that we needed to fix, which we’ve just implemented. Thank for letting us know :slight_smile:
