I did read that document but that is about adding affiliate links, not removing ones I never authorised or added myself.
If you copied and pasted any content rather than typing original content into the editor then the affiliate links could be embedded in the copied content code. Use the HTML editor to see if that is the case.
To copy and paste content cleanly see https://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text “Plain Text on” mode.
This is definitely not the case and I’ve been in touch with the Media Manager for the company I’m linking to. Have also just checked the HTML to confirm.
I think this is a hacking issue and is happening across the board. How can I rectify?
This thread was previously tagged for Staff follow up. Please be patient while waiting.
What is the URL of the post and the link in question? I’d be happy to take a look and see if we can see an issue on this end.
Let me know, thanks!
