    I had this problem 2 days ago, switched to Chrome and it worked yesterday. Back to not working today so obviously not the browser's fault! What is going on?!

  3. Yo uso Chrome siempre, porque aqui aunque tengo idioma espaƱol, muchas explicaciones salen
    en ingles, y con Chrome me ayudo para traducirlo.
    Por otra parte insertar un link o enlace al final de la entrada no funciona.

  4. Can't add links.

  5. I tried switching to Chrome, and that didn't fix it. Also, I try clicking on the HTML tab and nothing happens. I first noticed that something was weird when I saw that both the simple version of the posting & styling buttons and the 'fancy' version (icons) were on the top of my text box. I have tried Firefox, IE, Chrome, Opera and Safari on the Mac. No luck.

    I hope they roll back whatever weird change they made pretty quickly. I guess I'm not posting to my blog today.

  6. I would wait for several hours. No panic, engineers will be able to fix it soon. No worries.

  7. I just started a new post and the functions are OK now, - thank you, Staff! :-)

  8. I'm having the same problem as everyone else. I'm in Chrome and use only Chrome! It's not a browser issue for me! And it's also only a few hours old. The hyperlinks and visual/html windows worked before I imported the Tumblr plugin by mistake...

  9. It works again! Yahoo!

  10. I am still not able to use links. I have IE8, have not made any changes to my computer, have not added any plugins,and still have had no ability to use links for about 5 days. I have tried to 3 different computers and all have the same problem. I also have no way to connect to the support as that also no long functions. When I hit the 'help' button a box opens a series of printed options appears for a split-second and then disappears, leaving me a blank box. When I try to post a link the insert link box opens but the link url once pasted then opens a "are you sure you want to leave this page" insert with the options of leave page or stay on page. Neither allows for the link to be posted.

    I know staff support is working on this but I want to continue to impress the problems still exist. I have blogged for years and posted over 5,000 separate items and know this is not a problem at my end. Something happened at the WordPress end.

  11. I'm so sorry this problem is persisting but I'm also glad it's not only me....
    I've tried everything suggested on this and other luck. What is going on?

  12. Hello
    I just thought: could all those problems have something to do with the strange referrers to my blog I see appear for, say, about week?

    Very strange to me: referrers (strangename) and (yesterday): (strangename)

  13. @janien: I really don't see what this would have to do with spam referrers, so relax. :-)
    As always, follow the instructions here please.

  14. @airodyssey

    Thank you so much!

    Oh, I did'nt want to obtrude here, as I see I wrote that spam referrer in 'strong'! I'm sorry ... Meanwhile I've learned a lot in this forum.


  15. I am still having the problem and I have checked for the latest version of IE9, Flash, etc.

    I cannot link and when I go to a new post screen, the icons for both HTML and visual are present. If I click on HTML, then I only see those icons. When I switch back to visual, then the HTML icons disappear.

    When I do try to link, I either get the leaving page error message or I just get bumped back to the list of posts screen. It is not consistent.

    I can't contact support - when I enter in problem and press "search", the screen freezes.

    All other features appear to be working ok.

  16. @spinningstar

    Just the same linking problems on my blog! You describe them very well. As my English is not good, I'm glad with your clear description.

  17. Just a quck update . . . LINKING still broke. That is all. Carry on.

  18. I am wondering what is going on with support as they are silent on this matter that is now closing in on a week of problems for those of us who blog, Linking to stories we are writing about it vital. Telling readers that WordPress can not seemingly fix the problem in my posts is getting old.

    When I do try to link, I get the leaving page error message.

    I can't contact support as when I enter in problem and press "search", the screen freezes.

    All other features seem to be working fine.

    It would be nice if someone from support took the time to come on this thread and update those of us who are having this problem and let us know how long we might be impacted with this issue.

  19. If you cannot use the link to contact Staff then you can email [email redacted]

  20. It's still not working. I've tried to link twice in the last 3-4 days and have the exact issue as described by others. It's particularly frustrating right now because someone on one of my discussion lists, which has over 2000 members, recently asked which was better, Blogger or WordPress, and I sang the praises of WordPress. Several people told me they were going to try it since I made it sound so good. So, not the best time for it to be broken. :(

  21. @studiorose
    Are you willing to try using a Chrome browser? I'm asking because others have done that and it worked for them. one example here >

  22. Linking still broken..........!!!!

  23. @dekerivers
    Have your tried any of the workarounds or not? Those who have tried Firefox or Chrome were successful. Some have been successful when switching to inserting links in the HTML editor rather than the Visual editor.

    At this point we have no idea which browser and version of it you are using. We do not know if you have tried clearing your browser cache and cookies. Note that any outdated browser version can be upgrade here.

    We don not know if you have checked to see if your Flash version is up to date. Note that you can upgrade your Flash here.

    In fact we do not even know what the URL starting with http:// for the blog in question is.

  24. Also note that I did provide you with the email address for Staff above >

  25. Still not working. My blog kind of hinges on linking, so this has got to get fixed, otherwise I need to find some place else to blog. I don't wanna go Chrome, I don't like the look of the home page. Actually, I don't wanna have to go to such extremes to fix a blogging problem . What other sites can you blog on?

  26. Okay, just for the hell of it, simply because I was getting fed up with not being able to post a link, I download GOOGLE CHROME and, NOW, I can make a link.Happy?

  27. Good for you. :)
