    I have been using WordPress older versions to create text with links before and I didn’t have much problems with it, now with the new change I can’t even add colors on my text that got a link on them, it always become Blue on both inside the editor and when I preview it on my website.

  • I am also having problems with link boundaries feature.
    I find if a link already exists and I want to add some text AFTER the link, there is no way I can keep the text outside the link. In previous versions of WordPress, I could add a 2 or 3 spaces after the link, type my extra text which would now be outside the link.
    Then remove the extra 1 or 2 spaces.
    With 4.8, I can no longer do this. I have cleared the browsing cache, etc.

    I think I figured out the solution to my problem.
    Instead of trying place my cursor at the end of the link and then typing,
    I used the -> arrow key to space over to the end of the link (boundary link) and then I could type my extra text which is NOT included in the link.

    The trick for beastcrusher90 above may be that there is a light blue highlight on the link which you may confuse with the selected dark blue highlight. Try really selecting the link as you normally would ’till you see the dark blue selected highlight. Then you can bold, italic, color, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the help, I actually just found the solution to my problem, and the way I did it is by:
    Firstly I have to give color to the text that I need to edit, then add a link to the text to make it appear like it should be.

    If you add a link to text before adding color the text will not recolor at all, maybe this should be fixed.
