Relative Links Fix

Corrects Firefox behavior in which pasting formatted content in the editor converts absolute URLs to relative URLs.

WordPress bloggers will sometimes copy headlines from a WordPress-generated homepage and paste them into the post-editing window. In Firefox, this has the unfortunate result of converting absolute urls into relative ones. For example, copying a headline from http://khaotica.com converts the permalink for this article:

http://khaotica.com/2009/12/firefox-relative-links-fix-wordpress.html

...to a relative link:

../2009/12/firefox-relative-links-fix-wordpress.html

This creates broken links when the post is viewed on the archive page and RSS feed. The links will also be broken for subscribers who receive posts via email.

Enter the Relative Links Fix. This plugin will replace relative urls with the proper absolute urls every time you save or publish a post. If you use WordPress and can't shake those copy-paste habits, this is the plugin for you.

As always, donations are appreciated. I promise to spend them exclusively on soda (the creative fuel that powers developers everywhere).
