Event Calendar – Mouse-Over Details (Can't Click in Box)

I have the event calendar set up and working, but when you mouse-over / rollover the event to show details in the pop-up box, you cannot click on the link in the window because it disappears too quickly. You can see this on the site here:

Is there a setting where this can be changed so that the pop-up window doesn’t disappear so quickly?

I’m using Chrome on Windows 7.

I have the same issue using Explorer…are you supposed to be able to click on the link or just view the details?

The reason why the pop up box is disappearing is because it is only triggered when you are hovering over the event. Once you move your mouse to go to the pop-up, you are no longer hovering over the event, so it disappears. The only way to “fix” this would be to leave the box up if your mouse was anywhere either in the event or the area that the box would be in, but this would result in a lot of stacking pop up windows particularly if you had multiple events on the same day. Does that make sense? What you’re asking to do isn’t really feasible.

But all of this is unnecessary anyway, because if you click on the event, it will take you to the registration page. Additionally, using the anchor text “click here” is generally considered bad practice for SEO.
