# ModernCV \social hyperlink not working despite working email hyperline [closed]

\email{first.last@colorado.edu}                               % optional, remove / comment the line if not wanted
%\homepage{www.johndoe.com}                         % optional, remove / comment the line if not wanted


The hyperlink works within the generated preview within Texshop but when I export as PDF and view in Preview or Adobe Acrobat I am unable to click the LinkedIn hyperlink despite being able to click the email hyperlink.

Any thoughts/input would be greatly appreciated. I've looked at all related questions in this forum regarding my problem and have tried all solutions but haven't had any luck.

• Does \social[linkedin]{name}work? (There seems to be no second optional argument.) – Mike Jun 23 '17 at 23:36
• Ok, there is a second optional argument. But your URL is the same as used by ModernCV, just without the / at the end. So removing the / may also help. – Mike Jun 23 '17 at 23:49
• I can't replicate your problem using the moderncv template. See this output that correctly shows the URL and is clickable. If you can provide the community with something that replicates your problem, maybe then we can help. – Werner Jun 24 '17 at 0:19
• hey guys so the problem still persists but I seem to have narrowed down what the issue is but still the problem persists. When I omit the second argument {with my name} the hyperlink is inactive; however, if I leave that argument blank the hyperlink works seeing as how its an actual link. Any thoughts – johndoe424 Jun 24 '17 at 8:29
