Support » Everything else WordPress » Link gets modified when saved in a post.

  • I have a new problem since this morning. When adding a link in my post I get somthing like a href=””\””>Procedimiento /a (the starting a and the ending /a are ok, I had to modify them to make the line visible. I have tried many ways to get the link right. Even using the html editor. It is ok until I save or publish. Then it gets a sort of wrapping. The right link is This only happens on the remote server. When I build the same link on my local server, with the link facility or directly, it is ok. No wrapping.
    I searched for forum posts with “link” and there seems to be some relation with some particular posts but I would like to now if this is something knew. See, I have many old posts with links in them running with no problem but now I don’t dare to edit any of them because the problem may happen when I save the post.
    Have you seen this problem or know of some reference?
    PD. What is a backtick? How i can type one?

    <img alt=”\”SpaScapes\”” title=”\”SpaScapes\”” src=”″ />please work

    good luck figuring it out, ill post if i find any solutions. .. ..peace

    Try the WordPress 2.0.3 Tuneup plugin. It should fix your issue

    not working for me
    tried to activate tuneup plugin and got message:
    Warning: in_array(): Wrong datatype for second argument in C:\Sites\Single22\grides33\webroot\wordpress\wp-admin\plugins.php on line 100
    same original problem though, everytime i press save it adds sets of slashes wherever there are ” marks..?

    Hi Nazgul,

    When I activate this pluging other plugins get deactivated. When I reactivate the deactivated plugins this one gets deactivated. Sort of a toggle switch. Is that the way it should happen?
    Please advise.


    Hi gride,

    We may have a bigger problem in hour hands. This was my conversation minutes ago with my host support (Brinkster).

    Tim: You will need to upgrade WordPress. We just patched a security hole within MySQL yesterday and WordPress seems to not like the fix.
    Tim: Please view the following link:

    I saw the link. It may just be in greek for me.
