Recently I started to use the lifespan module. There it is easy to find persons that miss dates for birth and death. But when I click on the names, clearly indicated as links, the same page is reloaded, which is not what I had expected. After some experiments I realized that the link was "#" which gives that result. By removing the hash mark a much better effect is achieved: a small popup window with the persons name, birth date and death date appears. The name in there

is a link to that person's individual page. Probably this was the intention from the beginning.

A patch is included (lifespans.txt). The exact definition of how href="" shall be interpreted has not been found, but it works in Firefox, Chrome and Edge. When hovering with the cursor over a name it is highlighted as a link, which is good. If href="" is completely removed the name is not shown as a link when hovering over it although it is still clickable, which is not intuitively clear.

I use webtrees 2.1.7 on desktop PC with Linux (Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS). Actually it works without patch when I try version 2.0.19 which I still have installed!

I do not see this. When I click on a name, I see a popup window with the details. When I click again, the window closes.
The page is not reloaded.

Do you also see this on the demo site? dev.webtrees.net/demo-stable

What is the URL of your site? Can I see the problem there?

Apparently this problem only shows up in my private installation. It does not appear on another site with the same info (webtrees 2.1.7 and same gedcom file).
I have to investigate what happens here!
