I can no longer make links on my website, http://www.universityofbrattleboro.com.
Previously this was easy to do. Step one highlight the text, step two hit the Link button, step three enter the appropriate url, step four, update the page. Viola, text turns blue and is a link.
Now, when I click on the link button when editing the page, nothing happens. Nothing at all.
I have tried this in Chrome, Firefox and Explorer. Nothing.
I wrote Blue host.
I explained that this problem was occurring BEFORE uploading the latest version of Word Press and continues now.
Below is the text of the email I received from Blue host technical support. I include it here because frankly I have no idea what the hell it means, and I could not remotely hope to reproduce it in my own words.

I've tracked down where the problem appears to be occurring. It's due to it missing a single quote somewhere where the variable ajaxurl is defined. here's the error:
unterminated string literal
ajaxurl = 'http://www.universityofbrattleboro.com
I'm sorry, but this is outside the scope of our technical support. For more help with WordPress specific issues, I would recommend visiting: http://wordpress.org/support/. Someone there should be able to help you track down where that quote is missing and whenever you find it and add it, that should resolve the problem.

I am sadly, a novice. Any explanations of what to do will need to be pitched to me as real slow balls. If I can't resolve this I will have to re-create all my pages from scratch. Sites where I cannot make new links are basically worthless.
