HTML Picture Links Change to Non-Linked Pictures

  1. Hello! I'm editing and inserting picture links. When I save and go to page, the picture is there, but the editor changed it to a non-linked picture html. What am I doing wrong? The page I am editing has a ton of picture links that are working fine, it just won't let me add a new one. Frustrating.

    The blog I need help with is nextblime.wordpress.com.

  2. Will you please post a link to the Page you are having trouble with?

  3. http://nextblime.wordpress.com/what-we-are-hoarding/

    The link is above. I am inserting "<IMG SRC="URL">" and when I save and view, it is changing the HTML to "<IMG SRC="URL">. It did this several times. It's the third tile for "This City."

  4. Please ignore the above because it is also changing my html above. Let me see if I can get it to stick if I put spaces between each character.

    < A H R E F = " U R L " > < I M G S R C = " U R L " > < / A >

  5. The software strips out affiliate links. Paid content and/or sponsored content and affiliate links are not allowed.

    The only very narrow exception is found here in italics:

    Blogs that violate our advertising policy or fall into one of the following categories are not allowed on WordPress.com:
    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK.

  6. Weird? I wonder why it worked fine for six months but is only now removing those links? I will take your advise from other posts and move that page to a non-wordpress location. Thank you!!

  7. You're welcome.
