Works for me too. Could you be more specific about the issue and how you reproduce it?
Will close this if no further details provided within 3 days.

Hello Yannick and Angel,

I figured out why certain links are not working for me:

I use AdBlock on my browsers. Here is an article with comprehensive statistics on % of people using adblock extensions and software. http://www.quora.com/What-is-the-percentage-of-Internet-users-that-employ-AdBlock-Plus-or-similar-ad-blocking-plugins

When enabled, the homepage links that do not work for me are: Inbox, Compose, Pending invitations,and social network

cheers,

r

I installed the AdBlock Plus plugin on Firefox with the "Remove Social Media Buttons" setting enabled. And effectively some tools from Chamilo stop working. This, because AdBlock Plus hides certain classes in HTML documents.

The `section-social` and 'social-menu' classes are used in Social Network and Inbox tools.

To solve this bug, I renamed this two classes to `section-social-network` and `social-network-menu`. They are probably blocked later

There are icons named like `social-*.png` blocked.

I tested on both Chrome and Firefox: Thus far it is working perfectly.
Cien mil gracias.

Angel, You most likely already saw this:
Here attached is a list of the "blockable items" on Chamilo 1.10 as per Adblock Plus (Firefox version) -- this list is generated with the following filters enabled: potential ads, social media buttons, tracking and malware domains.

In the users manual, it might be advisable to add a reminder to administrators and teachers to add Chamilo to their "whitelist" if using AdBlock or similiar plugins.
Thanx for your time.

Only the first 8 items in the attached list are marked as "blockable" --- sorry.

Hi Robert, please check on unstable.chamilo.org and let us know if this works for you.

Hello Yannick,

As you know: I don't know squat about programming.
As a practitioner:

There are different plugins and services out there for ad blocking.
I use AdBlock Plus from https://eyeo.com/ , a nice German company that specialises in open source software.
AdBlock Plus seems to be more comprehensive when I use it on Firefox versus Chrome.
To be thorough, I enable all filters (potential ads, social media buttons, tracking and malware domains.)
On Firefox, I simply click "open blockable items". When I do this now, after the fix by Angel, I no longer observe any blockable items.
The 8 previous items are no longer highlighted.
From an amateur's point of view, it seems to be 100% fixed.

cheers and thanx!

No need for technical review, don't worry, I just expected you to did exactly what you did: try it online and see if it looks fine.
If all of our team had to install all the plugins and software that our users use that affects their navigation, it would be a nightmare, so we usually kindly ask our reporters to check after we published a patch, just to make sure that the developer doesn't have a false idea of what should have been fixed. This is our quality assurance process. If the reporter is available and acknowledges that the bug is fixed, and given the previous internal validation by one of our senior developers, we're good to go.
