Support » Fixing WordPress » link added in editor disappears when saved/updated

  • Resolved 5high



    Have recently upgraded to w/p 3.5 (3 days ago) and all seems OK except for adding links in visual editor. It allows me to add the link, see it in preview where it even works, but when the edit is saved/updated it disappears in the page editor and in the page itself.

    I’ve deactivated all plugins, switched back to standard 2011 from a child 2011 theme, cleared the cache etc – but all with no effect, as the problem remains.

    I’ve checked out other threads for this but haven’t found a resolution, so would appreciate some help when possible.

    Many thanks.

    Are you scheduling any of these Posts?

    Hi esmi,

    Sorry, I’m not quite sure what you mean by ‘scheduling’ these posts? Basically we’re in the final stages of page editing before launching a whole new website. So we’re only working on pages, not posts, and the links are to other w/p pages on the same site.

    However, I’ve re-visited both the new page which had this problem, and both an old page and made another new one, and the links work fine both for internal and external ones in these other pages. So… have put problem page content in a new page (without the image) and all good; and with image added it’s OK too. But what I do remember happening was that when I first added the image to the problem page, it sat below the grey text area, and then the grey text area just kept extending with the added text – so maybe it was an issue with inserting the image first, before any text? or possibly with the new media manager, though it seems to work very well.

    So, overall – problem solved by re-doing page: ie; a glitch must have somehow been introduced with the image or text originally, which is now OK. I realise this is v long-winded, but thought it might be useful if it is in fact a glitch with the new media manager.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Cheers.

    There’s a known issue with Posts that are not published immediately but scheduled for later publication via WordPress which results in markup being stripped from the Posts. Just wanted to check that this wasn’t happening in your case.

    OK – thanks. The only possible similarity with this is that the page was initially saved as a ‘private’ page and was only changed to ‘public’ a day or so later.
