Latest Update from WordPress Removes Title Field Altogether

WordPress 4.2 – aka Powell – rolled off the production line back in April with a number of new features.  This included removing the functionality of the link title attribute in the WP link editor. For full article about the 4.2 update, click here.

Since WordPress no longer supports their title field in the link editor, this latest update from WordPress has omitted the Title field altogether. I have a feeling some folks will be confused by the new “Link Text” field and it’ll be used as the title field.

Now remember that according to WordPress and Google, the title tag hasn’t mattered for some time now, but for those of us who still like to fill in a title tag, here’s the plugin I reference in the video below.
