Adding Link to Existing Post (3 posts)

    When I add a link to a post that already exists (edit) the link appears in the individual postings (the page with commenting ability) but does not appear on the main page or on the corresponding category page.

    Is this a bug? Please ask if I need to be more specific about my problem!

    Do you use the_excerpt to output the posts on the main and category page? That template tag strips out html tags (e.g. img, a, etc) from the posts.

    For excerpt output with more control, use the following plugin.

    I just use whatever is supplied when you install WordPress. Why do I need to install a plugin just for a link to appear? I mean, it has the ability built into the posting editor...
