After the most recent update of WordPress, we’ve noticed that any word used in the text of a page or post that happens to match the title of another page or post is automatically converted to a hyperlink. This itself is a problem but to make it even a bit stranger, the hyperlink that gets created isn’t necessarily to the page with that title.
Example.. we have a page named “Submit” .. on another page, we have some text above a form that tells the user to complete the form and click submit… the word submit was converted to a hyperlink.
The only resolution was to alter the text where we saw this happen to not use a word that happened to match a page name. Has anyone else seen this? If so, any workaround to just stop this behavior?
