Edit box does not appear when trying to create a hyperlink

  • Im trying to create a hyperlink within the text on one of my pages, but when I highlight the word and click the link button, the box to paste the URL does not appear. Nothing happens. I would greatly appreciate anyone’s input on this. Thank you in advance.

    -Try adding this to the wp-config.php file above the “stop editing” line so it looks like this:
    define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false);
    /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
    Save that, clear your browser cache and cookies (do not skip this step, it will not work if you don’t clear that out on your browser), re-login and try again. Also, make sure that your browser has JavaScript enabled.

    Thank you t-p, but how do I access the wp-config.php file? I am currently making all edits from the WordPress dashboard.

    you can also do it via FTP or SFTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    open the file in a plain text editor and edit.

    Thank you t-p, I really appreciate the help

    You are welcome 🙂

    a new problem has come up after editing the wp-config.php file. I highlight the word and click the icon to create a hyperlink, my entire screen turns grey and the edit box appears in the bottom left. I can then add the destination URL, click add link and it works, I can see that the word turns into a hyperlink; however, the edit box and grey screen remain, so i am unable to go back to my page screen or even save any changes. Help please
