Redirect works in footer but not html block


Recommended Posts

I have the following code in the footer and it produces a button on the bottom of my results page that works to redirect the user to another url. 

<script type="text/javascript">
if(!document.getElementById("norecord"))
{
document.write('<button onclick=document.location.href="https://www.myirlog.com/logbook/new-record-entry">No, Really, I want to add a new record</button>');

}

</script>

 

However, when I put that same code inside of an HTML block, it does not work: 

<script type="text/javascript">

if('[@field:participant_1_name]' != '[@authfield:Name]' && '[@field:participant_2_name]' != '[@authfield:Name]' && '[@field:participant_3_name]' != '[@authfield:Name]' )
{
if('[@field:participant_2_name]' == '' || '[@field:participant_3_name]' == '' )
{
document.write('<button onclick=document.location.href="https://www.google.com">take  me away</button>');

}
}

</script>

 

The buttons appear in both locations, but only the footer button works, when the in-line button (the one coded in the HTML block) is clicked, the whole page just refreshes instead of going to google.

Try using my code instead of document.write part

<script type="text/javascript">
 var uniqueId = 'xxxxxxxx-xxxx-4xxx-yxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx'.replace(/[xy]/g, function(c) {
  var r = Math.random()*16|0, v = c == 'x' ? r : (r&0x3|0x8);
  return v.toString(16);
 });
 document.write('<button id="'+ uniqueId +'">take  me away</button>');
 var button = document.getElementById(uniqueId.toString());
 if(button){
  button.addEventListener('click', function(event){
   event = event || window.event;
   document.location.href = "https://google.com";
   
   event.stopPropagation();
   event.cancelBubble = true;
   event.returnValue = false;
   return false;
  }, false);
 }
</script>
