Today I wrote a very long post and included several pictures. After completing and publishing the post, I went back to edit it and then saved it. The pictues then disappeared, to be replaced with the link to the files.
All of the photos in the piece were linked photos (so that the reader could enlarge to see the full pic) stored here at WordPress. I couldn't delete the little boxes with the linked file name in them. Even when I went into the HTML code and removed the picture references, they came back. I literally had to delete the entire post and then repost it.
This is the second time this has happened, and it is always on a long post with several pictures. The first time it happened, I thought I had done something wrong (I thought I had inadvertently pressed the little icon for linked picture in the Tiny MCE editor) but this time I know I didn't.
Does anyone have a clue what happened here & how I can avoid it in the future? Thanks!
