What has happened to "My Connections" links in the emails I receive? None of them are working for me.

I cannot open the "My Connections" links in the emails I receive.  Is anyone else having this problem?  This is very frustrating for me!

I would suggest that you remove your e-mail address from your question to reduce the risk of receiving spam. People can answer your question here or contact you through your Wikitree-id.
I removed the email address, but I note that it's an AOL address, in case that detail is relevant to finding the answer.

The links in today's email work for me.

Are you seeing an error message when you try to open the links? What does it say?

Maybe your e-mail provider is disabling the links? One of my webmails does this and I have to click a link at the top of the mail to enable them. I think it is just an over the top security measure, at least in my case.

Thank you!  And I get when I clicked on the link all I got was a blank page with the address being "about:blank" with absolutely no other info with only a totally bland page showing.  Nothing more to click on to take me anywhere else.  It is very frustrating!

This is the second time I have typed this email.  The first time Wikitree wanted me to sign in, and when I did, I lost the complete email.

I have done some investigating into this problem, and it is not AOL, it is Wikitree.  Whoever is posting the "My Connections" links is not doing so - no URL links were posted - all other links work perfect. This has happened on these dates.  July 18, July 4, and June 27.  Other posting before these dates I had no problems opening.  Who do I contact at Wikitree about this?

This issue has still not been resolved and continues.  Are their any other suggestions regarding the fact that there are no clickable links associated with the "My Connections" sections in the emails being sent out via email from Wikitree?  All, I get when I click on the blue links is "about:blank" in the address (url) and it is a blank page.  Surely, I am not the only one that is having this problem.
