  • I have not been able to use the “link” button in the visual editor since I have made the upgrade. Clicking on it does not bring the modal window up.

    I’m not 100% this is linked to the new RC3, as I upgraded a couple more plugins at the same time (YARPP, among others), but it looks like the likeliest candidate.

  • It’s working in trunk 17368. The modal window comes up whether or not there is anything highlighted.

    I’m running Multi-Site with 77 plugins.

    You probably just need to deactivate all of your plugins and turn them on one at at time to find which one is causing the problem.

    Works for me too. If the plugins don’t help, what browser are you using?

    Firefox has been all sorts of dinky lately. :/

    Thanks for the replies, I’ll check the plugin thingy. The problem has appeared on Safari (Mac) and Chrome (Windows); not tested on Firefox yet.

    Ah, life on the bleeding edge. 🙂

    I’m running on Firefox, latest version, if that helps.

    The “bleeding edge” would be WordPress 3.2 now. 😉

    OK, “life on the formerly bleeding, now carefully cauterized edge”, then.

    Bleeding edge is back to 3.1 for now. We got a little ambitious. 🙂

    You still having issues with this? It is likely a JavaScript conflict with a plugin.

    link button is not working for me either, and i’m using the official release that came out today. one plugin i am going to look at now is nextgen gallery – i know it injects a lot of stuff into the site.

    I have the same issue. The only button not working is the “Link”-button. I doesn’t work in either Firefox or Safari.

    I also think it’s some JS-conflict. Because it works in the “Post”-page but not in the plugin I downloaded. The plugin where it doesn’t work is Meenews.

    I would deactivate the plugin then, and let the author know.
