Support » Fixing WordPress » Automatically converting links to attachments in post

  • I’m not sure whether this belongs in suggestions or how-to, but here goes. When I add an image to an unpublished post I’m editing, and set it to link to the attachment page, the link looks like this:

    When I publish the post, however, it gets converted to this:

    But the links to attachments that I add manually (for example `<a href=””>this is a pretty cool image</a>`) do not get converted, so I have to publish the post, and then go back and edit it again.

    I upload images through the post edit screen, so they get automatically attached to the post.

    Why don’t attachment links I add myself get converted to “pretty permalinks”, and is there some sort of a simple fix for this?
