After database migration: Pages with hyperlinks not displayed on front end (4 posts)

    A very strange issue: After we migrated the wordpress site to a new database, there is now a display issue on the front end.

    If a new (or old) page has *many* hyperlinks it is not shown anymore on the front end, though on the back end, everything looks fine.It is not possible to really qualify the number of hyperlinks needed for the page to not be displayed anymore. After many tryouts, I did not find any pattern.

    For example, I took a newly published page with 15 hyperlinks. It was not displayed on the front. I deleted all but 3 links - it was displayed. I undid the ca. 5 last deletions of hyperlinks to have 8 on the page - not displayed. I went back to the 3 hyperlinks that worked and added 5 random new hyperlinks - displayed again...???

    Apart of this, the website works perfectly (other pages, widgets, plugins etc.)

    I deactivated all recently installed plugins, but that did not change anything.

    Does anyone know this problem? And can it be the result of the migration? Before, everything worked fine.


    [No bumping, thank you.]

    What do the links refer to? Do they point to content that is loaded into the page? Is the content on remote sites or from your own site? Do the links still point to the original site?

    If the links are for content that must be loaded, and they still point to your original site, you could be having a timeout problem.

    Thank you for your help! No they point to external sites only and not to internal pages.

    Do problems like this sometimes occur with wordpress?

    I have not personally encountered that, but then I have not moved that many sites.

    It might help if you explained more about the migration.
