Y Important: Don’t edit admin posts in “Visual” mode

If you’re editing WordPress posts in “Visual” mode, and you edit one of the instructor’s posts, you’ll be removing snippits of code that pull in links. So, please either do not open these posts (you may view or preview them instead), or change your edit view to “Text” view. Thanks!
