Support » Fixing WordPress » Dashboard shows 1 extra outgoing internal link per post / Missed scheduled post

  • My posts are showing one extra outgoing internal link on the dashboard. In posts where I put one outgoing internal link, it counts two. And Ryte is telling me I have 24 internal no-follow links that I didn’t put. (I don’t even know how to add a no-follow link.) Looking at the Ryte report, it shows that the source document and target document are the same. Are my posts linking to themselves? I don’t understand.

    Also, I have a missed scheduled post for the first time ever. Could it be related to the new theme? The time the problem started coincides with the time I switched to the Lovecraft theme by WordPress.com. I contacted Anders Noren, who is written as the theme developer, but he says I’m using the WordPress.com version that’s developed by Automattic, Inc., not him. He says it’s a different code base and he’s not familiar with it.

    How do I fix this? I really like the theme so I don’t want to have to change it. (I also tried using the developer’s version, but I liked the WordPress.com version better.)

    Thank you.

  • Hi there!

    It sounds like there could be a few things going on here. One thing that would help is if you could share a link to your site. Can you let me know where you downloaded the theme you’re using? That will help with figuring out the place to ask and how to debug.

    Depending on how you have that set up, that could give us some more insight into what’s happening with the Ryte report and the scheduled post. As a note, scheduled posts generally only work when someone visits the site at the time it’s supposed to be published, so there can be a few different factors related to why that was missed: https://make.wordpress.org/support/user-manual/content/posts/schedule-a-post/

    Hello. Thanks for the reply. My site is gorgeouskitty.com. I downloaded the theme from my WordPress.org dashboard. Anders Noren said I might have clicked on the Jetpack theme notifications at the top of the page and was taken to WordPress.com themes. At that time, I thought they were just the same.
