    does anyone know why certain editing will work on one of my computers, but when i try the SAME EXACT thing on another computer, it will NOT work?

    the issue i have is when im in "edit page". i conatantly upload files and link them in my "edit page". the steps i take are:

    1- media- add new- then upload a file. then i copy the file URL
    2- i goto "pages" and select my page
    3- i type in a description, highlight the description then click "link" at top of page
    4- i paste the file URL
    the problem comes when i click the "update". on one computer, the page updates and it links and everything does just as i want it.

    on any other computer, after i click update, while still in "edit page"- everything in the page becomes highlighted and nothing changes on my website.

    any help would be appreciated

    You're doing this all wrong. See Inserting_Images_into_Posts_and_Pages.

    im not doing it wrong- there may be different ways to do the same thing. but the issue im having is that what i do on one computer WORKS fine, but when i do the same exact thing on any other computer DOES NOT WORK

    Start by following the correct process on both machines.
