Can't create links in posts after 3.2 upgrade (10 posts)

    I'm unable to create links in posts after upgrading to v3.2. Another site at same host that is not upgraded works fine.

    Anyone else having trouble with creating hyperlinks?

  2. I have not had any issues with creating links. Try turning off all your plug-ins. If that fixes the issue, turn them back on one by one to find the culprit. Also check the Master Troubleshooting list:

    OK, I need to clarify the issue: when I create a new post, I can create links.

    When I go into a post that I created prior to the upgrade and try to edit the post and add a new link, that's when the issue happens.

    i can still hand code URLs in HTML mode, but one of our authors can't and i need visual mode to work.

    any other ideas?

  4. Did you try my suggestions above?

    been working through them, no change as yet. i'm a plug-in overachiever...going to take a while :-)

  6. Just deactivate all of them at once - if the problem goes away, at least you know the culprit is one of them, otherwise you can move on to other troubleshooting methods. ;-)

    That did it, thanks. Now to play whack-a-mole with each plug-in...yay.

  8. How many plug-ins do you have? ;-)

    Have you already looked at the master list I linked above to see if one of them is on it?

    Please report back when you find the culprit so it may help others. Good luck!

    Hello guys.
    I need your advice / help.
    I am fairly new to WordPress. I just downloaded the 3.2.1, and I'm having the problem skip mentioned above.

    The exact issue is, that I cannot link anything. Whatever I add a link to, disappears. It looks okay inside edit mode, but when I go out to preview the page, it's simply not there.

    On the images, I can still see the captions, but the image is gone. On words that I try to link to, the same thing happens. The entire word disappears in preview mode. Any suggestions?

    Is there any update to this post as I have done the de-acativation to no success - upgraded - reinstalled etc. Can not get the link page to work.
