"a href" not working

"a href" not working
0

I am trying to use social media icons on my page, but for some reason they do not work. I have included a link inside the icons, but nothing happens when I click on them.

What am I doing wrong?

          <li><a href="https://500px.com/wandering_viking.html" target="_blank" class="contact-icon">
            <i class="fa fa-500px" aria-hidden="true"></i></a>
          </li>
   </ul>
.social-media-list {
  position: relative;
  font-size: 2.3rem;
  text-align: center;
  width: 100%;
}

.social-media-list li a {
  color: #fff;
}

.social-media-list li {
  position: relative; 
  top: 0;
  left: -20px;
  display: inline-block;
  height: 70px;
  width: 70px;
  margin: 10px auto;
  line-height: 70px;
  border-radius: 50%;
  color: #fff;
  background-color: rgb(27,27,27);
  cursor: pointer; 
  transition: all .2s ease-in-out;
}

.social-media-list li:after {
  content: '';
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 70px;
  height: 70px;
  line-height: 70px;
  border-radius: 50%;
  opacity: 0;
  box-shadow: 0 0 0 1px #fff;
  transition: all .2s ease-in-out;
}

.social-media-list li:hover {
  background-color: #fff; 
}

.social-media-list li:hover:after {
  opacity: 1;  
  transform: scale(1.12);
  transition-timing-function: cubic-bezier(0.37,0.74,0.15,1.65);
}

.social-media-list li:hover a {
  color: #111;
}

Do you have this on a repl.it, or a codepen, or something? There’s a lot missing here.

Sure thing.

I am basing it on this

When you say “not working”, which link is not working? I don’t see any links for the icons in the Codepen you posted (unless I am missing something).

You need actual links href="#" doesn’t link to anything.

It appears this is the culprit. Your after is absolutely positioned over the top of your link.

.social-media-list li:after {
  content: '';
  position: absolute;
  // ...

If you add pointer-events: none; to your .social-media-list li:after, it should allow the click to pass through to the link.
