Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot insert/edit links etc. on existing posts and pages

  • on-the-rocks-ardeche


    I cannot insert or edit links in *existing* post or on existing pages.

    When clicking the “Insert/edit link” button nothing happens.

    Also cannot change to “Text” mode. When clicking the button nothing happens.

    Distraction free writing button is missing.

    The errors do NOT apply to new posts and pages: all functions are fine and buttons are present.

    This did not begin with the 4.1 update, edited links a few days ago, no problem.

    Have reinstalled 4.1 from the Dashboard, it made no difference.

    Try deactivating all plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, try switching to the Twenty Fourteen theme to rule-out a theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).

    Also, I would check the console for errors (in Chrome hit F12 and click the console tab and let me know if there are any errors in there)
