When you click on a link, nothing happens!


The solution to this problem is to enable compatibility mode if you're using Internet Explorer (or to use another browser, like Firefox, Chrome or Safari). 

Here's how to enable compatibility mode in Internet Explorer 11 (IE11).  Choose this menu option:

Choose this option from the Tools menu.


Click on Add to show this site in compatibility view:
