Why does not the AUI Button Hyperlink macro work?

I've added several buttons using the AUI Button Hyperlink, but currently, nothing happens when I select the button, so I'm obviously doing something wrong. However, as there are only a limited number of parameters to set, I need some help in investigating this.


I fill in the title, URL and button type=standard and icon=none. I leave ID and class empty.

The button appears nicely when I save, but nothing happens when I select.

Adding a regular hyperlink works fine.


Any hits as to what I'm doing wrong?

I do not think that AUI button has url param. You need to define onclick handler:

AJS.$("#YOUR-BUTTON-ID").click(function() {

Aha! They must have changed something at some point, because I'd been using that set up as a URL param and then at some point it stopped working. I wasn't sure when.

Not sure what you are talking about, Volodymyr. I get the following dialog when editing the macro, and no place to edit the code of the macro.



However, the sysadm found that there was an upgrade available. When this was installed, the buttons worked.
