I just thought of something. Maybe the issue is the actual reference you are using. Instead of using “http://www.gcca.net/beta/component/eventbooking/?task=view_event&event_id=44&Itemid=641” as the link, use the alias link “http://www.gcca.net/beta/2011-06-25-05-28-36/258-puretabs-sampe” Try that first, and tell me if it works. Links in Joomla should always reference a menu item, and not a direct link to a component item.
