Hyperlinks within the description of my embedded Shopify product don't load

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.sleepycatrec.com/shop-vinyl

Hi,

I'm testing Shopify embed on my SS site. The products and collections are embedding properly except for the hyperlinks within the product descriptions, which just gray out and disable the site. I depend on description linking for navigation.

Anyone else have this issue?

In this test the "Libby" link is supposed to route to https://www.sleepycatrec.com/libby-rodenbough. I verified the description from Shopify product manager is using this full link.

This will happen with this type of Shopify Buy Button, where the entire product description and images are loaded from Shopify instead of Squarespace. The links will open in the lightbox window which is then closed, causing the issue that you describe.

In your circumstances, I recommend you use the Basic Shopify Buy Button (qty and add-to-cart button only) on the product page at https://www.sleepycatrec.com/shop-admin/libby-rodenbough-spectacle-of-love-vinyl. Your links should then continue to work.
