From this question on Wordpress SE, you can see that the URL is not linked properly:

But when I click edit, there is nothing wrong with it:

  • but what happens to the link? – Ooker Apr 27 '15 at 15:46
  • For me it's not linked at all on the main page view, just shows as plain text. When editing it, the preview section shows the link correctly, so it's something in the normal page view rendering. (Side note: blue freehand circles? That's just radical!) – James Apr 27 '15 at 15:46
  • @James what's wrong (or right) with blue? I don't get what you mean – Ooker Apr 27 '15 at 15:48
  • Actually, another answer further down shows the link fine: wordpress.stackexchange.com/a/6889/66022 (Nothing with blue circles - everyone uses red - was just joking :) ) – James Apr 27 '15 at 15:49
  • @James ahh, I see :D. I use the Snipping Tool of Windows, and the default color is blue – Ooker Apr 27 '15 at 15:54

This was just a rendering bug that existed at the time the answer was created and was still being displayed because posts get permanently cached until they're updated again. Something messed it up, but it's since been corrected. Just needed to be saved over again.

  • I see that you only add one period. Why did the bug appear? – Ooker Apr 27 '15 at 15:57
  • "because posts get permanently cached until they're updated again" - So it was broken in 2011 when it was saved. Saving over it causes it to get re-cached using the current Markdown parser, which has this issue fixed. – animuson Apr 27 '15 at 15:58
