I'm working on a module that's outputting data using $this->EE->load->library('table').

I'm passing this back to my index() function to render things:

return array(
    'rows' => $rows,
    'pagination' => array(
        'page_query_string' => TRUE,
        'base_url'    => $this->_full_url(), // My own function
        'per_page'   => 20,
        'total_rows' => $total_rows

This is all working wonderfully. In fact, my pagination links are working wonderfully as well. They're generating URLs like this:


And if I do a View Source and click the links enabled in the source view, they take me to exactly the page I want to see.

On the CP screen, though... I can hover over the links and see the right URLs in the status bar. My cursor switches to the hover state to show they're clickable. But when I click them – Nothing happens. The browser doesn't follow the link.

Why aren't they clickable? I've tried recent Chrome, Safari & Firefox versions.

Full pagination output:

  • What does the HTML look like when you inspect the code? Any obvious issues?

  • No, no issues at all. The links are clickable when you view source, and you can hover over them and see that they're links. Everything about them is a link. The browser just doesn't follow them when clicked. Updated question with full markup. Mar 8, 2013 at 15:24

Thanks to one of my teammates for suggesting I disable CSS & JS to troubleshoot.

The table is AJAXified, which overrides the link values. I was missing this:


Which the AJAX links require to refresh the table.
