    I think that I am having a similiar problem as Colin and I couldn't find the answer in the link that was posted. Here is my problem:

    I'm trying to add a simple URL link in a post that I am writing but when I add the link URL, the link becomes my blog address plus the link that I submitted. So it looks like this: "http://www.braintreefinancial.com/blog/www.dinersclub.com"

    All I want in the link is the desination URL, http://www.dinersclub.com.

    What am I doing wrong?

    How are you adding the link?

    Every link should start with http:// (which is the protocol; otherwise the browsers "think" it is a subfolder of your domain) - and NOT with www only!
    Sorry, this is not a blogging issue but HTML basics.
