SVG links appear but don't connect

I've just inserted an SVG, and written links to have several areas connect to other sites. It seems to work okay.

 

But now I need to insert a second SVG on the same page, and have it work the same way. But it won't cooperate.

 

As it was a long column to be worked on, I tried to set it in a separate page and import it to my working page:

<figure id="myMap3"> <img src="images/trngl&list_2019_right-105.svg" alt=""/> </figure>

 

But for some reason, the links I've set up on that page don't work. They appear in the proper location on the page, but they don't link to anything:

<a xlink:href="http://www.virtuevision.org" target="_blank" >
<title>www.virtuevision.org</title>
<rect x="18" y="31" width="450" height="22"></rect>
</a>
<a target="_blank" xlink:href="https://www.juliecohnfineart.com">
<title>www.juliecohnfineart.com</title>
<rect x="18" y="54" width="450" height="27"></rect>
</a>

 

Any ideas how to get this working?

 

Thank you for any help you may give!

I was looking directly at the SVG image and I saw several black rectangles that contained outbound links.   Those all worked.

 

Now that I look at your HTML document,  I see that your code is badly malformed.   And it quits at error #7 as unrecoverable.   Fix your code errors.

IMO, using SVG this way is the wrong approach.  Ordinary HTML hyperlinks are all you need for this.  A while back, Ben & I recommended Bootstrap C

Code snippets don't tell us a thing.  Upload the problem page to your server and post the page URL here.

Look at the page at

rickeisner.com/list4.html

 

The part which doesn't work is at

rickeisner.com/images/trngl&list_2019_right-105.svg

 

I hope this helps.

The outbound links in your SVG work OK for me.  Too many open browser tabs is a problem though.  I don't recommend using target="_blank" on every link.  Besides, it doesn't work on mobile browsers because they can't open multiple tabs/windows.

Nancy,

 

Why do they work for you but not for me?? I'm talking about the list4.html links on the right side of the page, which are the same links on the images/trngl&list_2019_right-105.svg page.

The left side is a SVG, the right side is a JPG

Yes, Ben, I've been trying to get it working by talking to a bundh of different folks. But it's now back to being SVG on both sides. (At least on my computer.)

IMO, using SVG this way is the wrong approach.  Ordinary HTML hyperlinks are all you need for this.  A while back, Ben & I recommended Bootstrap Cards but you didn't take that advice.  So now you're fighting an uphill battle that need not be fought at all. 

 

Happy coding!!
