    I am developing a theme. I was just testing my theme creating a new post. But when I create a new external link via HTML editor the link source are placing after the site url. As an example: If I create a link http://www.wordpress.org, it actually creating http://mydomain.com/www.wordpress.org. As a result when I click the link it shows 404 error. Can anyone help me what is going wrong?

    Hi ShoaibAbdullah,

    Make sure you are typing the link with the http:// at the beginning. This problem happens mostly when someone types only "www.wordpress.org" as the link.

    If this doesn't help, try clearing up the cache (if you have any cache plugin installed) and go to "Settings > Permalinks" and click on "Save" so it regenerates the permalink structure.

    Cheers

    oh Canha thanks for your help. Actually I am a fool. I thought the link will work properly as I write typically in HTML. Now it works greatly.
