My action link buttons are working, tested it with Firefox and Chrome.
Edit: and in IE.
My action links are working (Chrome and FF). Looks to be a location (or rolling update) problem.
Ok, today i faced the same issue with the action button or while using the reply button here.
Advice: do a shift-reload, see if that helps. if not, try somewhere else and see if the problem remains. It may be something in firewalls, routers etc that you have to go through.
Alternatively press F12 (in Chrome and Firefox at least) to get the web developers window, check the console and the network tabs to see what your browser is reporting (I suspect quite a few errors in there).
For what it's worth, I also experienced this problem a couple of times recently. It's not a browser problem.
The problem as such isn't new. I also find that platform responsiveness is getting slower and slower, even though there's nothing happening. The inbox is sometimes unusable and requires reloading to respond to clicks.
Speaking of action, most of the forums that I have been following for years are dead and have been for some time. Oracle doesn't seem to care much what's happening with the public community, or am I seeing this wrong? I checked some profiles and many people have apparently left for good, including decision makers. From my perspective, the platform is ill-designed and poorly managed. I guess what bothers me is all the time spent. Somewhere down the road it became an amusement park. Anyone still fancy playing?
Appears to have been a proxy issue. Admins have reconfigured the proxy server and updated certificates which has resolved both the secure connection problem and the OTN Actions issue.
Sorry, I hope you don't mind me asking, but what admins? The ones at your site?
