Thank you for the reply – I ended up figuring it out by modifying the core file.. You mentioned looking in different forums.. do you mean in wordpress.org or somewhere else? I figured since I was looking to use a plugin or hack the core this was a good place to look for help. Please expand on what you mean or where else I can find the answers.. I appreciate the help.
Can you explain what you did to disable internal linking? Even if it was an edit to core, it’s breaking my site due to a plugin conflict. The plugin developers are working on a fix, but I do need a stopgap fix… many thanks in advance!
