    Edit/Update blog post removes hyperlinks and breaks images, by sumoyoshi

    Hi guys,

    had issues with my wordpress install where I could write and post a blog post and it would be perfectly fine, however if I go and click “edit” in the visualiser the images are missing where before the url would show it now just shows “src=””” like the URL has been stripped from the edit screen.

    It also removes hyperlinks where I have added them successfully, unless I try to edit and push the update to save. I can’t for the life of me figure out why it is doing this all of a sudden. I’ve backed up all my posts and created a brand new WordPress install on another host (Digital Ocean this time) and posted a few, then hit edit… it seemed to work OK the first few tests I did, no problems.

    however I tried an hour later and I’m getting the same issue again. Why would WordPress be removing my image URL and the hyperlink URL’s when I click on edit post?

    I’ve done it with no plugins and the standard wordpress theme, I’ve done it with a bunch of plugins I use and Hueman theme, I’ve started a fresh 4.9.1 on a completely different host with nothing related to my previous install or site and same issue. I’ve used multiple computers, various different browsers with and without extensions, I’ve even tried it from my mobile phone. WordPress 4.9.1 seems to be having fun removing my images as soon as I click on edit post. I can click the broken image and click the pencil for “edit image” and the image appears…. I can press submit and the image comes back.

    until I try and edit the post and submit it again. then all the url’s are immediately missing. what am i missing in this process?
