Let me preface this post by saying I really doubt my problem has anything to do with All in One SEO Pack Pro, but I am trying to ‘leave no stone unturned’ as I attempt to solve this strange, frustrating problem. 

Problem: All external links on my Wordpress site have been changed (converted) such that they now link to my site’s wp-content/uploads folder.

I am flummoxed as to what could have caused this problem. I have searched, Google, and Bing, and I cannot find anything about this problem.

Here is an example:

On this page of my site:…..-disorder/

At the bottom of the post, in footnote 3:

3. I recognize the mind-body dualism implied by using the terms medical (physical) disorders vs. mental disorders. I am using these admittedly awkward terms for ease of reading, and because that is how the VA categorizes them.

The phrase ‘mind-body dualism’ originally linked to:…..y_of_mind)

But it now links to: ‘’

which does not exist.

This seems to have happened to every external link on my site. I have fixed some of them manually. 

What I’ve done so far–based on recommendations contained in: READ THIS FIRST – WordPress 4.5 Master List

* Flushed browser cache (Chrome).

* WP Super Cache – deleted all caches.

* Using Your Browser to Diagnose JavaScript Errors –

* Step 1: Try Another Browser (To make sure that this is a JavaScript error, and not a browser error, first of all try opening your site in another browser.) – I usually use Chrome or Opera, but I also checked the site in Firefox and IE too. Same error.

* Step 2: Enable SCRIPT_DEBUG – Problem persists.

* Deactivate all plugins – Problem persists.

* Switch to the Twenty Sixteen theme to rule out any theme-specific problems – Problem persists.

* If your host provider has a “Purge Varnish” option or if you can ask your provider to flush memcache on your server. – Done by GoDaddy tech support when I called them. They were very helpful, and spent 40 minutes working with me by phone trying to figure out what could have caused the problem, but no solution emerged.

Thank you very much,


P.S. Michael or other forum admins/moderators – If you would rather I not post this on the forum, since it probably not caused by All in One SEO Pack Pro, just delete it, and I will understand. :O)
