#5764 closed Bug (duplicate)

Link button puts URL to left of selected text

If I select text, click the Link button, type a URL, and press Enter or hit OK, the link usually but not always is inserted into the body test just to the left of the selected text.

For example, if I select Hello, World! and try to link it to, I'll end up with http://www.cnn.comHello, World! in the WYSIWYG view and <a href=""></a>Hello, World! in the HTML code. Occasionally, CKEditor will properly link the selected text but also link many words to the right of the selected text. Rarely, CKEditor will link correctly.

I can reproduce on Firefox 3.6.3, Google Chrome 5.0.375.55, and Internet Explorer 8 at All browsers are running on Windows 7.

I am not the only one to experience this. See the Drupal WYSIWYG module bug reported at

In into the body test just to the left, I meant text instead of test.
