I'm creating an interactive map for office locations to make it easier for clients to reach out to the nearest office. I use HTML file, CSS file, and JS file together for this map. Everything works fine except when your point out a location on the map, information about the nearest office should popup on the right side of the screen. This information includes a hyperlink to the office's website. The problem is that the hyperlink looks fine (blue and underlined) but it is not clickable. I mean the link does not work.

I tried all possible solutions to solve that. Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

What I have tried:

This is the HTML code

<div id="centerInfo"></div>
<script  src="./vasbdc.js"></script>

</html>

This is the JS code
JavaScript
var vasbdcmap = document.getElementById("vasbdc-map"),
        centerInfo = document.getElementById("centerInfo"),
        allCenters = vasbdcmap.querySelectorAll("g");
        vasbdcmap.addEventListener("click", function(e){
            var center = e.target.parentNode;
            if(e.target.nodeName == "path") {
            for (var i=0; i < allCenters.length; i++) {
                allCenters[i].classList.remove("active");
            }
            center.classList.add("active");
            var centerName = center.querySelector("title").innerHTML,
            centerPara = center.querySelector("desc p");
            sourceImg = center.querySelector("img"),
            imgPath = "http://gator2007.temp.domains/~virgibdc/";
        //  imgPath = "";

            centerInfo.innerHTML = "";
            centerInfo.insertAdjacentHTML("afterbegin", "<img src="+imgPath + sourceImg.getAttribute('xlink:href')+" alt='"+sourceImg.getAttribute('alt')+"'><h1>"+centerName+"</h1><p>"+centerPara.innerHTML+"</p>");
            centerInfo.classList.add("show");

    
            }
        })

You "tried all possible solutions" cannot be true in that if you had it would be working.

But here's how to find your bug - and it's a good rule-of-thumb method for many link-related problems.

Modify your code so that when the link is 'clicked' it sent to a javascript alert() and see if it's really a valid link (or copy by highlighting the blue underlined link and pasting it into a pure text editor, such as notpad). Is it a good link?

But one other note: you code seems somewhat sophisticated and yet you seem to be unable to get the link to work - is this really your code or copied?
