NOT QUITE RESOLVED -- are there general theme(s) compatibility issues that might explain this?
Hello Web Era,
Thanks for suggesting this. I disabled all plugins and I discovered one that was preventing the tabbing from Text to Visual. (SocialGrid by Micheal Whalen).
I am now able to create NEW hypertext links as normal .... but ... as soon as I save the post as a draft or publish it, the links become uneditable again. I can, though, still modify the links in Text mode.
This "solution" has worked on all 3 "Elegant Themes" branded themes I use: eGallery, Lumin and Basic.
So .... even with ALL plugins disabled I still have the issue of existing posts not allowing me to edit hypertext links.
In Perusing the WordPress support site, there is multiple mentions of themes not being compatible with WP3.5. I'm wondering if this might be the case here, as I've disabled all plugins on 3 sites and yet I still have some symptoms.
This said, I've not read anything on Elegant Themes support that would indicate this as a general cause, or at least address my symptoms.
Can you tell me if I am missing something here? I don't know what to do at this point!
Thanks once again!
