On Again Off Again WordPress Quirk – July 21, 2021

It’s pretty sporadic. Sometimes I can’t change a post or portions of a post. If you noticed on this post – Osborne County Historical Museum, Osborne – Kansas Tuesdays July 20, 2021, I am missing some links as I could only delete the links as opposed to modifying the links. For the most part, I was able to modify the links at the beginning, but as I worked down the links, it became impossible to modify the links. It’s happened a few other times. Sometimes I can do a copy post and it shows up there. Earlier today, I had a case where it would not let me modify text. I was able to do a second copy post and this time it let me. Thankfully, it was a short article.

I see it more of a growing problem with my North Carolina, Mississippi, and Kansas posts as those tend to have the most links that I need to modify. It can happen on a short post, but I can usually come up with a solution that works given enough time. This has been going on intermittently for a while now. Not sure if it started after being forced to switch to the new block editor, but that was when I first noticed the problem.

The temporary solution is to be aware that when I remove links, there may be links I could find, but couldn’t modify the link to add the new link and had to remove the link.

    Sorry to hear that about your post; yesterday I wrote my Bible contradiction post and for some reason WordPress said it was down for maintence; so my post disappeared and wasn’t even on draft when it worked again; I was so tiered and went to sleep and it appeared in the morning but someone reading my blog said it did not appear on WordPress reader at all! Strange…
