Cannot open a mailto link inside a post

(Miguel Hurtado) #1

Hi there, I’m using Discourse 1.6.0.beta2.

I have notice that on new post mailto links won’t open correctly. They are redirected to a track link script that doesn’t open the default email client. The url of the script is this: (replace with the installation url).

This doesn’t seems to affect posts that are about two weeks old, just new ones. Examples of this behavior can been seen here:

Can't link emails Email link fails.

Can't create mailto links in posts Email link works.

In my installation I have “track external right clicks” disabled, and it has always been like that.

Aha, I see what you mean. Probably a bug we should fix. @techapj can you add to your list?

Both ways, they all fail.
