    Custom Tab not firing click event

    Hi folks,

    I wonder if someone could help me out please. Basically I've created a custom section in the Umbraco back office. When this section is selected a htm page is loaded in.

    enter image description here

    This HTM page has a clickable link in there but when the link is clicked the scripting that I've chained the event isn't firing i.e. It's just behaving link a normal link.

    <p>This is the salesforce loading page</p>
    <a id="clickME" href="#">Click Me</a>
        $('#clickME').click(function (e) {
            alert("Button Clicked");

    Could anybody assist please?

    Thanks, C

    It looks like the eventhandler that you are creating should work.... not sure - have you looked at the console-out? Any errors?

    I would recommend you to implement a AngularJS-controller and use that for your front end and skit jQuery.

    I've blogged about this here:

    Note that the scripts are inline in the view - you should consider to move them you a js-file and add that file to your package.manifest-file so that Umbracos backoffice loads the file.
