[closed] 3.4 upgrade breaks WP links and url editing (7 posts)

    I upgraded a couple of my sites to 3.4 without knowing it was going to break some features. They still work in my 3.3 sites but in 3.4 when I try to highlight text and create a link, the link button does nothing in visual or html editing. I have to manually code the "a href" tag. I also noticed I can't click edit by the auto generated url and the url won't appear until I click save draft. Usually once I click out of the title and start editing the text, the title will appear and I can edit it to a better url if I want to. There may be other things like this not working but I've noticed these 2 since I use them frequently.

    Hi oak3,

    You should try to re-install wordpress by:

    1. Downloading the latest wordpress
    2. upload all files in the root of wp
    3. upload wp-admin and wp-includes

    John, thanks for the suggestion. I finally just tried it and it still does not work.

    I'm having the exact same issue, have tried everything people have suggested and it's not fixing anything!
    I need to be able to link in my posts to other authors sites etc and can't. I'm effectively inactive and unable to do my job properly because of this upgrade.
