I have my map showing my different markers - from info pulling from MySQL. But I need to let the marker open html when clicked on.

At this moment the popup is just the marker label and does not take you to the link provided.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>AJC Tracking</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://d19vzq90twjlae.cloudfront.net/leaflet-0.7/leaflet.css" />

    <div id="map" style="width: 100%; height:100%"></div>

    <script src="https://d19vzq90twjlae.cloudfront.net/leaflet-0.7/leaflet.js">


    var planes = [
        ["CM63CKGP",-26.090852,28.137212, "http://ajcdev.savanacloud.com/custom/qsourcescript/leaflet/single.php?Registration=CM63CKGP"],
["CW94GBGP",-26.12728,28.037458, "http://ajcdev.savanacloud.com/custom/qsourcescript/leaflet/single.php?Registration=CW94GBGP"],
["DJ17CSGP",-26.037963,28.115384, "http://ajcdev.savanacloud.com/custom/qsourcescript/leaflet/single.php?Registration=DJ17CSGP"],

        var map = L.map('map').setView([-25.890852, 28.090852], 10);
        mapLink = 
            '<a href="http://openstreetmap.org">OpenStreetMap</a>';
            'http://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
            attribution: '&copy; ' + mapLink + ' Contributors',
            maxZoom: 18,

        for (var i = 0; i < planes.length; i++) {
            marker = new L.marker([planes[i][1],planes[i][2]])
         function onClick(e) {


I would recommend updating your leaflet version to 1.7.1 which is the latest, and note that there are differences between leaflet 0.7 and 1+.

About your popup not opening the link, it's because you set the url as text, and not as a link.

You should do this to create a link:

marker = new L.marker([planes[i][1],planes[i][2]])
            .bindPopup(`<a href="${planes[i][0]}" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">whatever text you want to display for your link</a>`)

  • How do i get each individual marker then to have its own link, sorry stil dont understand how i should change my code. did the upgrade though – Paul van Zyl Oct 12 at 9:30
  • when you just change the bindPopup statement you can have your own link. If you want the link to appear as a url just do .bindPopup(`<a href="${planes[i][0]}" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">${planes[i][0]}</a>`) – Dror Bogin Oct 12 at 9:31
  • thanks working 100% you are a star, one extra question though; – Paul van Zyl Oct 12 at 10:08
  • if i want ${planes[i][0]} to be shown as a label under each marker and still have the popups working? how do i do that – Paul van Zyl Oct 12 at 10:08
  • bindTooltip(`${planes[i][0]} `) That's the closest leaflet has to a label – Dror Bogin Oct 12 at 10:27
