    I am using the latest wordpress version, even I have a problem with post which contain href link is to be text on call the_excerpt (link is not working) but when I replace the_content its working?

    why and what's the reason from excerpt to content....

    its the sample code.....

    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_author();?>
    **<?php the_content(); ?>**

    // the above the_content is display the href link normally but when I replace the_excerpt href link is not working in the post why and what's the reason

    Are you talking about links within the post excerpt?

    Also in the latter case, HTML tags and graphics are stripped from the excerpt's content.

    basically, the_excerpt() strips/removes all html tags, including link tags.

    consider using a plugin for advanced excerpts http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=advanced+excerpt to keep some html tags.
