URL links in text no longer active

  1. My blog is a monthly music column. I like to give links to websites in the main body of text. However, there have been problems lately. Halfway though my February column the links were deactivated. Readers are no longer taken to the site that I've provided the link for. What's wrong?

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

  2. I cannot explain why the links are no longer active in your posts. I visited the blog and checked out the latest two posts. In the second latest some links are active and some aren't.

    Were any of the links affiliate links or advertising links? If so then the software may have stripped them out.

    Have you tried editing the posts and reinserting the links?

  3. Thanks for your reply. I figured it out. It wasn't a problem with wordpress. I'd somehow deactivated the auto-formatting of hyperlinks in my word program. Don't know how it happened but it was simple to correct.
