link buttons not working in visual mode (writing and editing posts)
You write the word or phrase that will act as the link, highlight it, then click the Link tool to add the URL.
and i’m doing that like i’ve always done, but when i click on the link button it doesn’t open.
I’m having similar problem. I have written the word or phrase, highlight it and then use the link tool. When I view my posts the links work fine. If I however try to view them as a rss feed http://jawillissite.wordpress.com/feed/ — the links are not clickable for content in my body. There is on link attempt I tried today where I put the link in the title or header. This looks clickable but does not fully work. I really want them to work on my posts in the feed format. Any suggestions? I’m still just learning how to use, but I do understand about adding the text/highlighting it/using link tool.
Thank you very much.
I’m having exactly the same problem as elipunto : (
There’s nothing wrong at all. The links do work in the test posts you are creating. May I suggest that you start creating actual content in the test post rather than posting a single ink in the post?
If you are not running one of these browsers and versions of them please upgrade http://browsehappy.com
Firefox has a built in feed reader but Chrome doesn’t so a feed reader extension is required. Here’s the link for that extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nlbjncdgjeocebhnmkbbbdekmmmcbfjd
If you are using Chrome which lacks the built-in feed reader you need to install the browser addon.
Here’s how to make links in posts and pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/links/
This is the general link model:
<a href="URL HERE">Highlighted anchor text here</a>
This is a the appearance (it’s not actually linked her in the forum)
Highlighted anchor text here
We get so many requests for this assistance that I published a post on the topic. See here please > Creating HTML Hyperlinks (Links) in WordPress > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2013/05/20/creating-html-hyperlinks-links-in-wordpress/
The links in your posts work for me. I suggest the fix needed is at your end of things. If you are using Chrome please read what I posted above re: feedreader addon required.
1. If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.
2. If you are using an IE browser in compatibility mode please disable that mode. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html
3. If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/
(a) Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
If applicable see here for instructions on how to clear the cache for Chrome and Safari on the iPad:
(c) Disable all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily.
(d) Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/
Add both *.wordpress.com and *.wp.com to your list of trusted sites under the Security tab. Make sure to uncheck the box for “Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone.” http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/#frequently-asked-questions
4. Try using another browser.
5. If you are not successful let us know:
(a) Exactly what kind of device you are using to connect to the internet and to WordPress.com.
(b) Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/
(c) And what any error reports you receive state.
Clearing the browser’s cache worked for me. Who’d say… such a simple fix for such an annoying bug!
Thanks : )
Hooray! Best wishes for trouble-free blogging.
