When we try to use the "Insert Link" button while editing a page, the usual popup window does not open, and nothing happens. Popups are not blocked, and the same error occurs on multiple machines.

What needs to be done to correct this so we can enter links? Editing the HTML is getting tiring.

Hey there, yep this seems to be a bit of a bug in the WIKI/ribbon editor. This is what I do (1 or the other):

- if you just select one word, the button/link should work (but that usually isn't what you want)
- the other option is, when creating a link, instead of selecting text, just put your cursor where you want the text *and* link and choose Insert Link.  Then put the text in the appropriate field and link in the other - sure, a little lame, but far easier/better than editing the HTML all the time
