    Both the default WordPress insert link dialog and the TinyMCE advanced link dialog work properly here in Firefox, Chrome and IE 10-9-8-7. Do you see any JS errors?

    Hello,

    I'm facing the same issue: I'm not able to add a link to a text anymore.
    When I highlight some text, the link icon (chain) remains grey.
    Same after uninstalling / installing again TinyMCE advanced 3.5.8.

    Installed WP: 3.6
    Browser: Firefox portable 22.0
    Issue not present in IE8 but with a strange behaviour: first highlight of text doesn't work (grey icon). Ok after a second attempt.

    Please help !
    Thank you

    Hmm, no, still can't reproduce it here.

    - Could that be a caching problem? Please delete cache, quit the browser, start it, and try again.
    - Does the link icon work despite that it's greyed out?
    - Does it work in the standard Visual editor, if you disable TinyMCE Advanced and clear the browser cache?

    Thanks.

    Another suggestion: try enabling (or disabling) the "Advanced Link" checkbox temporarily, then clear browser cache and see if any change.

    Thank you Andrew for your support.

    - Could that be a caching problem? Please delete cache, quit the browser, start it, and try again. Same issue
    - Does the link icon work despite that it's greyed out? No
    - Does it work in the standard Visual editor, if you disable TinyMCE Advanced and clear the browser cache? Link icon remains grey also in standard visual editor.
    Does it mean that the issue comes with WP 3.6 and not because of TinyMCE Advanced ?

    Another suggestion: try enabling (or disabling) the "Advanced Link" checkbox temporarily, then clear browser cache and see if any change. No change

    Could it be useful if I grant you a temporary admin account ?

    Andrew.

    First Kudos to you and your plugin! I have it installed a few of my sites and am not having an issue except on one of them. This is a site I inherited with a few plugins so I am sure it is a conflict of some sort.

    That being said, if I click in the text editor, or highlight my text and then press ALT, SHIFT, and A at the same time (your shortcut) the Link is no longer grayed out and also works as normal.

    Tried your suggest above but to no avail, but there is a workaround to have it function.

    Used IE9 and it worked up until the update to 3.6, but again just for one site that has a few plugins.

    BushidoPT, same here. I rolled back NextGEN to make sure that was the issue. You can follow the steps here: http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/how-to-rollback-a-version/ and that was indeed the issue. Make sure you follow what they have in place and you will be good to go.

    @fredMCCR yes, it seems it's a problem with the default TinyMCE in WordPress, not caused by the plugin. The next step is to look for JS errors in the browser console. Open the console, reload the page and try again. Then post any JS error here plz.

    @SpotlightWeb thanks :) Could you try different browser, perhaps Chrome, and look for errors in the console too. If the keyboard shortcut is working, the error is probably coming from not fully loaded JS file, etc.

    @BushidoPT think this still may be a caching problem in Firefox. Haven't heard of any incompatibilities with NextGEN. Maybe try clearing the cache and restarting FF 2-3 times.

    Ah, we posted almost at the same time with @SpotlightWeb :)

    Disregard my previous comment re: NextGEN. Hope this will be fixed soon.

    Thanks for the quick responses Andrew. There 2.0 release just came out at the end of July (30th or 31st) so hopefully they resolve in the next patch.

    I do confirm that NextGen Gallery 2.0 came in conflict with TinyMCE.
    I rolled back NGG to previous version 1.9.13, I can now insert a link to a text. Issue fixed, thank you all for your support !

    NB: NGG release 2.0 seems to be a real crap, have a look at their support page !

    fyi: I was having the same problem and am also a firefox and nextgen user but I just received and installed the NextGen 2.0.11 update and my problem is no more.

    Thanks Andrew for the plug-in and for everyone's collaborative trouble shooting. It's great to problem solve as a group.

    Hope you are all good again as well.

    After updating to WP v.3.6 and also Twenty Eleven v.1.6, many buttons that normally showed disappeared, Trying to move them around in the settings page didn't work and the kitchen sink button work properly. After many clearings of cache etc., I used the remove settings button, continued and then reloaded the page to the default values and then could rearrange the buttons again. This was the first time that I had done this and am happy with the result. It may also help with problems with certain buttons.

    why would they release such an unstable version, when everyone including myself is having so many problems, can't load any media, the hyperlink button doesn't work on the front end ( works on the text side ) But what a pain in the rear end.

    WordPress is always been so reliable in the past. Why would they would be such an unstable version that has been tested properly.

    in the next version of WordPress, they should include a downgrade button as well.

    Fitguru,

    I am not sure what issues you are having. The issue in this post was between two plugins with the culprit being NGG. WordPress and this release are extremely stable without issues. I have about 20 sites I oversee and this was the only issue that came up. I f you are having issues like you describe it is most likely an issue with a plugin or theme not being compatible with this version of WP. NGG has issued two releases since this post and is now there is no conflict.
