Link button not working in pages
This is also happening to me; I can’t edit any pages (not posts). Plus when I go to edit a different page it hangs on the beep beep boop page. Also tried the backdoor (old) method of editing pages, that doesn’t work either.
Also non functional (on old version) is the button for ‘copy a post’, the help button (and also the button to left of that). I need this asap. Please what’s gone wrong.
Be sure you are using a browser and version of it found at http://browsehappy.com and upgrade it required.

It’s clear that without warning WordPress has deprecated the Classic Editor by deleting buttons, rendering it unusable.
Those of us who had the Classic Editor access via Bookmark now have to deal with the new editor.
Mike I thought so too, but I can’t even edit pages in the new editor, so I think it might be a bigger issue?
In essence you are months late to the party as these changes were made in March. It’s true that you cannot deactivate the new Beep Beep Boop editor but you do not have to use it. For locating the ways and means of accessing the legacy or classic pages for creating posts, editing posts, and for viewing stats see here > Navigating the Classic WordPress.COM interface http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2015/04/05/navigating-the-classic-wordpress-com-interface/
On the dashboard of your own blog at
Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
To create posts in the classic editor for you that link is http://theradiocrytic.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php
If you have cookies enabled on your browser your preference will be saved unless or until your clear your cookies, and it will take you to the classic editor automatically every time you create a new post via the drop-down menu in the black admin bar or edit a post via the edit button on the blog itself.

The Classic Editor will continue to exist in wp-admin. We know some users prefer to use this editor, so we want you to have access to it, instead of phasing it out with the new version of the Dashboard. However, a link to the Classic Editor will not return to the New Editor. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/when-editing-an-old-post-how-do-i-switch-to-the-classic-editor?replies=5
Features that won’t be included in the new editor

Agreed and that’s why I advised tagging this thread for Staff help.
Tagged and waiting, thanks timethief!
Well, I just used my Classic Editor bookmark and got all the buttons again. This might have been a temporary glitch. Panic over.
I use only the classic editor.

Good to know and thanks for telling us.
I see the buttons but no scroll bar on the right and linking is still not working plus new editor still hangs too; panic for me not over! :)
Please be patient while waiting for a Staff response.
Yup – just temporary. AOK :-)
Don’t mind me. Just hopping on the page-editor-loading-problem train, to wait for the update.
As a temporary workaround, I edited my content in a draft post, then copied and pasted into the old page editor (being patient! Just thought this might help others with the same problem).
Have you tried using the classic editor?
So, there was a glitch with the editor today. It should be fixed. You might need to reload it if you happen to have a page open to it (remember to save your work).
