not sure if it's our joomla site that is already kind of buggy or the jce plugin. but we been having issues with adding images and links in articles since v2.9.31 and now also verified v2.9.36 as well yesterday. when we installed back v2.9.30, it works again.
thanks for looking into this or willingness to look into this, i think it's still unclear when this happens and when it doesnt. im just troubleshooting from my designers said.. and what im experiencing in transitioing sites from joomla 3 to 4, etc. so lot of moving parts, and just not sure whats going on, but i think at the moment, i cannot pinpoint the issues and from where. ill hit you back up when things get more clear.
