Link icon not working (3 posts)

    Suddenly when I try to link highlighted words via the link icon, I get a blank box with an "X" in the upper left corner. Can't close the box by clicking on the "X". When I move my mouse, the blank box just moves with it; won't go away. I can't link. How can I restore linking capability?

    I'm having the same problem exactly, in WordPress 2.2, as is my client. We're both using Firefox. I can sometimes get it to work if I close my browser and re-open it, but it takes a few tries.

    I fixed this by going into myphp admin on my host, choosing the WordPress database, browsing in the wp_options.php and making sure the site url had "www" and wasn't just "http://sitename.com"; I had to make it "http://www.sitename.com"

    Worked like a charm.
