    When I try to link content of a post to an outside URL it works in Preview mode but I lose the link when I Publish. Published content has no underlined words. When I try to set up the link, I highlight some words which brings up the link box. I type in the URL of the link and the type in the words I highlighted in the next box. I then hit preview and it works but I loose it when I hit publish.

  2. There's a couple of things that could be happening here.

    1- When you preview the post, your looking at the full post, but when you publish it you are viewing the excerpt.

    2- Your theme is stripping out the links. To see if that's indeed the case, try switching themes.

    Can you provide a link to your site please with an example and location of where this happens?
