Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual Editor Insert/Edit Link not working

  • Resolved jwgstubbs


    I’m new to WordPress, but for the life of me I can’t get the Inset/Edit Link to do anything in the visual editor.
    I have deactivated all my plugins. Set my theme back to TwentyFourteen.
    I have followed this article
    Tried a different browser Chrome and Safari on the local machine – Chrome on a remote machine.
    Enabled Script_Debug (which assume is working as there is an entry in the javascript console “JQMIGRATE: Logging is active”)
    I’ve also checked the console and can’t find any errors.
    The only thing I can find is if I drill down through the page, I’ve found the following html relating to the button:

    <div id="mce_25" class="mce-widget mce-btn mce-disabled" tabindex="-1" aria-labelledby="mce_25" role="button" aria-label="Insert/edit link" aria-disabled="true" aria-pressed="null"><button role="presentation" type="button" tabindex="-1"><i class="mce-ico mce-i-link"></i></button></div>
    <button role="presentation" type="button" tabindex="-1"><i class="mce-ico mce-i-link"></i></button>
    <i class="mce-ico mce-i-link"></i>

    I can’t link to the site as it’s a local install (and in the admin side of it).

    Is this just something that is disabled now or am I missing something?

    OK – Complete user error!!!
    Just been searching another forum and I see that you have to highlight the text you want to use for your link!
    Not terribly intuitive, but at least I have the solution now.
