    I’m using Thematic theme with TinyMCE editor. I want to link this image to a page, but every time I change it, it reverts back to what you see above. I try clicking on the image and editing the Link URL. I try clicking on the link icon in the editor. Nothing sticks. Something is forcing the Link URL to revert back to the default.

    How do I override this? It shouldn’t be this difficult to link an image to what you want to. Even if I edit it in HTML view, the <a href code reverts back. I’m really stuck here.

    The site is http://www.jlscolumbiagorge.com/
    I’m trying to link to http://www.jlscolumbiagorge.com/video-tours/

    Thanks,

    Scott

  • I would assume this is a Thematic theme issue. Would anyone agree/disagree?

    Thanks,

    I have the same issue.

    Using Newsprint theme.

    I don’t know why we wouldn’t be able to change the raw HTML in one Theme and not another (it’s not something you see or style), but then there’s a lot I don’t know.

    I figured it out. With TinyMCE editor, there’s an option to override WordPress’ automatic link thing. It’s called “Advanced Link.” I highly recommend TinyMCE and I highly recommend using this Advanced Link. It makes it tough to link to internal pages–you have to do it manually–but it does fix my problem. WordPress is awfully aggressive about linking images the way it wants to. Very aggressive.

    Thank you for that. I see TinyMCE is a plugin, I’ll try it out.

    Just saw that the symptom doesn’t arise with the default theme btw.

    Really? So the theme is messing things up. Interesting. I hate it when scripts get aggressive about doing things their way.

    By the way, I added TinyMCE ’cause the default editor is awfully aggressive about stripping out whitespace.
