# Identify point information OpenLayers works GeoExplorer not

I am using the OpenGeo Suite. I can preview a layer in the GeoServer OpenLayers view, I can click on points and see the data from a layer produced from a PostGIS view. However when I do this in GeoExplorer I click and nothing happens. But if I click on a standard layer produced from a table (happens to contain the same geom data, just different fields) I can identify the point data.

I should say, I click the point, and in Firefox it brings up the little load icon, but that then disappears.

Update I have narrowed down the issue to be with views with a where statement that limits records that are only a certain species. Without this where clause the layer allows me to click. Going to try make the view using GeoServer rather than PostgreSQL directly.

Update 2 The above did not work with the GeoServer query. See my SQL below, the issue comes when I place the last where clause. The layer still loads and I can see the points, in GeoExploer + OpenLayers, but I can only click and identify points in the OpenLayers example.
