URGENT: product detail pages not directing to merchant website
Someone has just bought this to my attention. I cannot believe it has probably been like this for months and I was wondering why it was not making any money!

Store in factory:


When you click on an image or link, it takes you to the details page, but then from there, it just opens a new tab with the same page in it. It is not redirecting to the merchant.

Things i have done:
1. checked the code and definitely it says product.url on the Product Detail view, as opposed to, which is on the Category View.
2. I have upgraded the plugin, reset the store and reimported everything (including the new factory host, as I am using hostgator)
3. I have checked all the url settings in the factory.

Ahhh.. why is it not redirecting?

Murphy's law, the minute I sent the SOS email, I find the problem
I had to same url for the buy link and the details page, in the url settings.
OMG... how long has it been like that.
The only reason I found out about it, was because I was selling the site... because it wasn't making any money any more.... Can't make money with no links to the merchant!!!


Problem solved.

I imported your store (and all of its settings) into my test site and the "View" link works for me.

Do you have any other redirect plugin or custom mod_rewrite stuff on your site?
