Ugh, I just discovered this new issue after my WW linky was missing this morning when I double checked on it AFTER joining many other hops. (Please come back and try again) Sorry. It is just another bump in the road.
Anyhow what I found out was that WordPress is trying to protect us but in the process changed things and didn’t give us the option to cancel this new fix. To make a long story short what we need to do is add our linkys on the HTML tab at the end and update our post. DO NOT switch back to the Visual tab or it will disappear when you update or publish your post. arg. Not to difficult but I sure wish I would’ve been aware of it before it was put into effect.
