I am using Deedy's resume template on overleaf to draft mine, and I created a few hyperlinks like this

\usepackage{hyperref} %added this as the last package

\namesection{John}{Doe}{ 
\urlstyle{same}\href{mailto:asdasd@gmail.com}{tarunn2799@gmail.com} | +12345| \urlstyle{same}\href{https://www.github.com/asd213}{GitHub} \\ 
%credentials changed, obviously

The email seems to work but the hyperlink to my github profile doesn't. It doesn't appear as a clickable link on the pdf.

Same happens in another subsection I created

\section{Side Projects}{

\href{https://www.github.com/asdsad}{name} \\
\href{https://www.github.com/asdasd}{name}     \\
\href{https://www.github.com/asdasd}{name} \\
\href{https://www.github.com/asdasdad}{name} \\

}
\sectionsep

In the above section, none of the links work they just appear as regular text.

Help me out here.

    Welcome to TeX.SE! Could you please add a complete (with your documentclass and the relevant packages you're using) but minimal example which reproduces your problem? – CarLaTeX Feb 1 at 5:54
  • In particular, \documentclass[fleqn]{article} \usepackage{hyperref} \begin{document} \section{Side Projects}{ \href{https://www.github.com/asdsad}{name} \\ \href{https://www.github.com/asdasd}{name} \\ \href{https://www.github.com/asdasd}{name} \\ \href{https://www.github.com/asdasdad}{name} \\ } \end{document} does not seem to have the problem. – user121799 Feb 1 at 5:55

Well, your used class deedy-resume-openfont already called package hyperref, you do not need to call it a second time.

In your first code snippet is a closing } missing and with the following complete code

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

% IMPORTANT: THIS TEMPLATE NEEDS TO BE COMPILED WITH XeLaTeX
%
% This template uses several fonts not included with Windows/Linux by

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% 
% TODO:
% 1. Integrate biber/bibtex for article citation under publications.
% 2. Figure out a smoother way for the document to flow onto the next page.
% 3. Add styling information for a "Projects/Hacks" section.
% 4. Add location/address information
% 5. Merge OpenFont and MacFonts as a single sty with options.
% 
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%
% CHANGELOG:
% v1.1:
% 1. Fixed several compilation bugs with \renewcommand
% 2. Got Open-source fonts (Windows/Linux support)
% 3. Added Last Updated
% 4. Move Title styling into .sty
% 5. Commented .sty file.
%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%
% Known Issues:
% 1. Overflows onto second page if any column's contents are more than the

  • I'm really sorry, that was just a typographical error in the post. The {} already exists in the original latex file, it still doesn't work. – Tarun Narayanan Feb 2 at 11:08
