I find that the ‘link’ function no longer works on my blog. That is to say, when I highlight the words I want to form the link and click the button ringed in red:
I duly get the ‘Insert/edit link’ box, and it accepts the linking address, but when I select ‘Add Link’ lots of nothing happens.
The solution is to do it in ‘Text’ instead of ‘Visual’. After searching out the section with the desired wording, one highlights that, and then one gets the ‘Insert/edit link’ box by selecting , amazingly enough, ‘Link’. (If only the programmers for all computer functions would be as straightforward with everything, instead of making one play guessing games.) After pasting in the HTML – being careful to replace the ‘HTTP://’ already there while so doing and not simply add another such preamble – the ‘Insert’ will now work. One needs to go back to the ‘Visual’ function, though, to verify that it has ‘taken’ – the word/s will have changed there to reflect that they now form a link.
Of course, this may only be applicable on my rather old theme (which I happen to like), but – whatever!
