Restore Link Title Field


In core ticket #28206, the editor was modified to have a Link Text field instead of a Title field.

This plugin adds the Title field back.


  1. Upload the files to the /wp-content/plugins/restore-link-title-field/ directory or install through WordPress directly.
  2. Activate the „Restore Link Title Field“ plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ menu in WordPress



Very nice, thank you.

PS.: I can not understand, why this function not is included in WP …….

Works! Glad this feature still available

I am not a huge fan of wordpress, I do most of my own website design by hand, but some clients want a WP site, as much as I tell them NOOOO.

WP does a good job and has some awesome plugins to make my life somewhat easier.

This is not a deal breaker if this was not here, but I would stand my ground not to do WP sites. But with this plugin, at least there is hope.

Thank you.
