[resolved] Can't create new link for post with deleted link (2 posts)

    According to help topic U09 How can I add a link to an existing post?

    "Change the post status temporarily to draft, update the post and publish the post again."

    Does this not work for posts that had a link to Facebook but the link got deleted on the Facebook side? I accidentally deleted one of my recent links (picked the wrong one of multiple posts).

    I have tried changing the status to draft, as this help topic suggest, but republishing it doesn't create a new link.

    I have also tried:
    - deleting the link (result = error message)
    - checking and unchecking "do not link" and performing updates (result = nothing happens)

    Anybody know a way to get this to work? Somewhere the plugin must think that there is still a link.

    How about a simple checkbox selection on existing posts that says "Create new link to Facebook"?

    You'll have to delete the link on WordPress side manually too.
    See question E14 of the FAQ for instructions.
