I can add a link here to my blog using this wordpress forum text editor, but I am unable to do so using the Admin Dashboard on WordPress installed on my server.
But it's more complicated:
1) Previously I used Blog Client "Ecto" to author all of my posts, include links, photos, etc. Since upgrading to OS X 10.7 (Lion) the Ecto app is a bit kluge. so I have resorted using the online admin of WordPress.
2) With my new posts (the last two on my site) when I try to click the "chain" link icon and then add a URL and title, upon hitting update WordPress returns me to the list of posts and not the post I was just editing.
3) If I go to an older post that I authored using the Ecto blog front end client, I am able to use the link tool and create a hyper link.
So I know that the browser does support the feature. However, it is only allowing me to create links in older posts. Not a post that I just authored from scratch using WordPress Admin Dashboard.
This is too bizarre.
