I have had this ongoing problem. When I publish a new post as an affiliate page I naturally include links to Amazon. I click on edit. Copy and paste next to my photos and the link is blue and active. When I click update or preview the links turn black and they are not active. If you copy and paste them into your browser they work. Am I doing something wrong, or is it Word Press? Amazon responded that they could not help.

You must use the linking tool... Highlight the text you want to use as a link, then click the chain link icon in the editor and THEN paste in your link from Amazon, save, and you're good to go.

Thank you so much. You don't know how I anguished over this. I have made double work for myself by choosing a spot of my liking for the link, rather than high lighting a word. I needed to high light the black link and then paste it again. Everything is fine now thanks to you. I went back and corrected older posts as well. Your are an angel!
