@wickedmike: I just tried to duplicate this and I’m not seeing the issue. To confirm: you are referring to the normal “link” icon that looks like a chain link or infiniti symbol directly over the editor on the edit page/post interface correct?
And when you have NextGEN installed, it grays that out so it’s not clickable?
I’m wondering if we’re seeing yet another plugin conflict. I don’t know how many plugins you have running, but if you are willing, I’m wondering if we might ask you to try deactiving them – either one by one, or just all at once for a minute – to see if that resolves the issue.
If not, that’s fine. I know that’s always a lot to ask. The other thing you could do, if willing, is send us login credentials so we can see the issue. You can send those via our bug report and it will email directly to our developers.
@wickedmike: If you are open to doing so, can you include login credentials so we can see the problem? It would help us solve it more quickly. If you send WP credentials we’ll be able to see it. If you also include FTP, we’ll fix for you it as soon as we diagnose and find the fix if you’d like.
@wickedmike, did you resolve the issue? I’m having the same problem, and did the same testing of plugins and theme that you did. Have used NG for three years and generally liked it, but this is like having missing keys on the keyboard.
