    I can’t make links work in my new posts. The link button is greyed out in “visual mode” and whilst I can use the link button in “text mode” the links don’t appear in my post?

    The blog I need help with is www.browney237.com.

    You type the word or phrase that should become clickable, highlight it, then click the link button.

    I am not sure I understand?
    When I use the text section to update blog it displays as follows

    I recently found this which put an alternate view.

    Yet when I preview or vistthe site the words are there missing the link?

    Seems to be working now. I deleted app, cleared cookies and history all of which I had done previously with no result!

    “I am not sure I understand?”
    In the Visual editor, the link button is greyed out till you select a word or a phrase. You wanted to turn the word “post” into a link: you type the word as regular text first, then you select it, click the Link button, paste the URL, click Add Link.
    My guess is that instead of doing that you had tried to enter that word into the “Title” field of the link popup. That’s not correct: the title of a link isn’t the visible colored text that will function as the link, it’s (optional) extra info that shows up when one hovers over a link (so that one can tell what the link is without having to click it).
